[ubuntu] Driving a Korean 27 inch monitor using intel integrated graphics on a laptop

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I've recently purchased a First FSM-270YG 27 inch monitor from ebay, and have been having troubles gettint it to play nicely as a second monitor for my Toshiba portege R830-13C. When starting the laptop with the monitor plugged in (using an dvi-d to hdmi cable), the second monitor isn't used. I managed to use xrandr to get it to display a strange tiled view which seems to be 4 views at the same size as my laptops 1366x768 monitor using the following modeline: xrandr --newmode "2560x1440_60.0" 311.83 2560 2744 3024 3488 1440 1441 1444 1490 -HSync +Vsync xrandr --addmode HD (Hardware)
