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'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 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.
