So I'm very much an Ubuntu noob, in fact I just install Ubuntu to my P.C. and I started it up with both my screens plugged into my nVidia's dvi and vga ports and logged in, change the skin to classic gnome, because that's how it was when I last used Ubuntu (8.1), and both screens were working separately.
just to what you are dealing with, i have been using for about 6-7 months ubuntu and i learn quickly but if anybody could just give me the fixing code or the solution step to step i would be REALLY grateful..
I am working on a project for my class and i need to get 6 monitors working. I am currently using Ubuntu version 8.04 and I have 3 Nvidia cards; 2 N8400 and 1 NVS 290. I have confirmed that all three video cards work and the computer recognizes all three of them when they are in. When I use Nvidia-settings it only allows me to use 4 screens.
Hi! I'm currently using an ATI HD 5770 and am running 3 screens with twinview. The only problem is the lagg and det jerky window dragging. So I just bought a new card, an GTX 560 1GB ram. With two DVI and one DP, just like the ATI.
I was actually hoping that the Nvidia driver was better than the ATI driver. Ive had that experience from before.
I've been using ubuntu since 9.04 and never had a problem with Ubuntu bringing up the desktop graphical user interface. However I am currently not able to see anything graphical past the install screens.
I have an Intel DP55KG motherboard and just installed an nvidia gt630 graphics card (zotac), since the old graphics card failed.
I am trying to install Linux on Lenovo Ideapad Z575 (AMD).
When I run Ubuntu or Fedora from a LiveCD, I got some initial screens (purple screen with small icon for Ubuntu, some information screen from Fedora), and then.... nothing. For Ubuntu, I have a black screen, although I hear the Ubuntish sound when the login screen appears.
