i'm pretty noobish w/ubuntu though have been using it for about 6 months or so. i just installed lucid lynx last weekend (reinstalled it and my w7 os a few times actually after the upgrade from 9.xx to 10.04 went horribly awry).
can anyone help me to get my dual monitors working? i have a PNY NVIDIA Quadro FX 380 low profile card which has dual monitor support and am trying to get my dual displays set up but when i go pref>admin>nvidia xserver settings, this gives me the following msg:
so i opened a terminal and did this:you do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.
which tells me:sudo nvidia-xconfig
i then restart ubuntu (that's what i'm supposed to do to"restart the X server", right?) and i get a startup error that wants to put me in low graphics mode, but actually ends up not in low graphics when i start.Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".
Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup'
New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'
much appreciation in advance.
