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 have 2 gfx cards (geforce 260 gtx and amd 5450) they feed 3 monitors. However in ubuntu i can get this to work it only shows 2 screens. If I load the restricted drivers for either card it will display on that screen only.
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.
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.
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.
