triple monitor works fine on login screen, but breaks upon login (13.04)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 28, 2013
I have three monitors, two DVI and one HDMI. I have a GeForce GTX 660 with nvidia driver 313.30.
On the login screen the three monitors work fine. So I don't think anything is wrong with the xorg.conf file:
Once I log in, however, the second monitor gets cloned on the third monitor. The only way to fix it is by launching nvidia-settings and setting up the monitors again. Works fine after I apply the settings.
in the nvidia settings, the first monitor is labeled DPF-0 (DVI), the second (HDMI) DPF-1, and the third (DVI) DPF-3:
These settings are correct.
However under settings/Display it is completely wrong:
The first monitor is detected as "digital display", set Left of "ViewSonic Corp"
The second monitor is detected as "ViewSonic Corp" but is actually the "Ancor Communications" monitor, set Right of "Digital Display"
The third monit
virtual computer for every monitor
location: linux.com - date: June 17, 2009
alright i was wondering where i could find out how to use one single computer with x number of monitors to have it's own virtual computer for each monitor without the virtual computers messing with each other.
i remember reading about this somewhere and just recently remembered it when my job started taking suggestions for saving time and money.
any info can help or even just a point in the right direction, and yes before you send me a link i have googled it.
[SOLVED] Second monitor, EDID checksum is invalid
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 3, 2012
I have two 22" CRT's, of Sun. I run Fedora 16. My video card: nVidia Corporation G72 [GeForce 7300 SE/7200 GS]. First monitor connected to VGA output, second connected with a VGA adapter to the digital connector.
Suddenly, after a reboot, my second monitor does not give any image. exchanging the two cables of the monitors, gives no image on the first monitor. So both monitors are OK.

Need to monitor SSH attacks with Sebek
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 13, 2006
I am still fairly new to Linux but competent with much of the basics as I have passed the RHCT. I've monitored some heavy SSH attacks/attempts and I'd like to set up a honeypot to monitor what exactly is trying to be done. My intent is to put Sebek on FC5 with a weak root password so that I can monitor whats really going on. I have not used Sebek though and I am curious about how to get it all started.
I am familiar with iptables and I'll likely use an iptables firewall to just forward only ssh traffic to the box that has Sebek on it. I could also set another host behind it to be the logging server for Sebek but I am unsure how to do this and pretty weak with logs.
Thanks in advance for any tips, advice, or links.
How to remotely turn turn my monitor off
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 15, 2010
I'd like to know if, given ssh access, I can turn off the signal to the screen of my desktop workstation's monitor.
My remote machine is running ubuntu 9.10, and I have have ssh access to it.
It's all the way over at my desk, perhaps three metres away. I'm in bed with my laptop, and I don't want to have to go all the way over there to turn it off before I go to sleep.
I could ssh in and kill my browser, but this is a second-best solution.
Any suggestions ?

[SOLVED] How do I ssh onto slackware 10 with no monitor
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 19, 2009
Neighbor gave me Aptiva K6-2 333mhz with 5gb hdd; 1 pci ethernet slot. Monitors lasted long enough for me to install Slackware 10 version of: http://slackwiki.org/Minimal_System ;which i don't know if that was really what I wanted because I was aiming to just install servers needed to run the box as web server (though i don't know how that will work b/c box only has 1 eth0 card and i have only 1 public IP Address
Have slackware12 on PIII w/ 2 ethernet cards, 2hdds= 320GB, XPbox, laptop. How do I setup ssh and remote into the headless box?
Do i have to setup sshd server on my 2wire gateway 1800HG (4 ethernet Ports, 1 USB Port; DSL Not Uverse Gateway) to open port22 on any machine i use to ssh into Aptiva with?
During slackware10 install, I think (don't remember exactly) i set sshd to startup because a string of numbers was generate during first boot; did not write them down. Did setup root passwrd and added 1 user and yes i know those psswrds. lol Anyone working on similar proje

11.04 won't start X without a monitor attached
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 28, 2011
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my new HTPC to run XBMC. Everything works fine except, that X won't start during boot with the monitor switched off. When I switch on the TV the screen stays black. If I ssh into the machine and do
sudo service gdm stop
sudo service gdm start
X will start and everything is back to normal. X starts perfectly fine if the TV is on during boot.
The reason why I want to be able to start the system with X but but without the TV being on, is that I want to use it as a music player, remote controlled by my android phone, but as soon as I switch on the TV I want to see the XBMC menu and be able to play videos.
