VMware Fusion 3 Dual Monitors in Linux (nonUbuntu)
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I have been scouring through the VMware support forums, but no luck so far with my issue.
I am using VMware Fusion 3 with Slackware Linux 13.37, and am attempting to achieve dual-monitor support on my Macbook pro. I attempted this with Ubuntu 10.04 as the guest OS, and, after installing VMware tools on the Ubuntu guest, was able to get dual-monitor support working via some GUI tools in Ubuntu.
I am trying to get the same setup working on my Slackware VM, but no luck. Well, I can do it with KDE as my desktop manager, but I prefer lighter DMs such as Fluxbox or FVWM, but they don't seem to be able to handle it as nicely as KDE.
I have gone through support forums, and have tried every combination of changes to monitor/screen/video-card settings in xorg.conf (ie: /etc/X11/xorg.conf) and cannot get dual monitors working. When I do enable the setting in VMware Fusion (ie: Menu ==> View ==> "Use All Displays in Full-Screen"), I get the same desktop mirrored on both monitors, but not extend
Ubuntu 12.04 Dual Monitors Not Working
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 9, 2012
It is my first posting, please let me know what I can do to improve my presentation skill.
My issue is getting Dual Monitor working under Ubuntu 12.04. I have just upgraded to the AMD Video Driver for Ubuntu (amd-driver-installer-12-4-x86.x86_64) and when I tried to have Multi Desktop setup with two monitors, the 2nd monitor shows a white screen with black X as the cursor.
Would you please helping me solving this issue?
Please find the attached xorg.conf for my current duo monitor setup.
Thank you very much for your help,
Dual Monitors not working. at all!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 2, 2012
i am using ubuntu 12.10 beta 2 updated regularly.
i have a Acer H274HL (1920x1080 DVI cable) and a small Viewsonic VG150 (1024x768 VGA cable). i also have the GeForce GT430 video card and i am using proprietary drivers and they are up to date.
i have the big Acer hooked up and then i hot plug the small Viewsonic. the Acer turns off and the Viewsonic is now displaying my desktop. I go into Display in System settings and only the Viewsonic shows up. I also go into nvidia-settings and same, only viewsonic monitor available.
i have tried many many things. restarting, using the Acer with a HDMI cable... various "fixes" from the internet. lots of searching and no luck.
when i use the xrandr command it says DVI-I-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) even though it IS connected and works fine if i only connect the 1 monitor.
if anyone knows anything it would be a great help. thanks so much!

Dual monitors not working:Toshiba Satellite SA60, ATI Radeon Mobility 7000 IGP

I am trying to get dual monitors set up on my Toshiba satellite sa60, which has the ati radeon mobility 7000 igp, on kubuntu 7.04. My laptop screen is a bog standard [email protected]
panel, and the secondary monitor I attempting to use is a hp pavilion f50, which runs at [email protected]
The gui system configuration fails completely - I end up with a wobbly screen on the external monitor, and a blank screen on the laptop. If I just plug the second screen into the laptop, I dont see anything on it, although the 2nd monitor indicates it is recieving signal.
I have tried running 'X -configure', but the resulting config file leaves me with a perfect external screen and a blank laptop.
I have also tried editing my xorg.conf file, along the lines of posts on similar threads, although I must admit to being a novice at x configuration. The test configuration I am using presently leaves me with 2 blank desktops, and is an attempt to combine the X -configure files with and without th
dual monitors with different resolutions not working (nvidia)

Hi, I've searched the forums to no avail. My problem is as follows:
I'm setting up a new system, I have two monitors, the main one is working fine, but when I activate the second monitor through nvidia-settings it doesn't display an option with the right resolution (that would be 1440x900) so I end up wit a ugly looking second monitor.
My graphics card is:
Nvidia GeForce GTS 450

VertRefresh 56.0 - 75.0

Dual Booting Various Linux Distro Windows
location: linux.com - date: November 25, 2012
Hello everyone! Im fairly new to Linux and I have purchased a load of new Distros. I will be installing quite a few on friends and families laptops and I just wondered which of the following Distros I have will and will not allow you to install the Linux OS alongside windows automatically (i.e when installing it gives you the option to boot alongside windows)...
I don't want to risk wiping the Windows OS so Im a bit anxious to just go ahead and install them and also I dont want to have to set up partitions and install GRUB etc manually?

Need help with dual booting Puppy Linux alongside Ubuntu 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 2, 2013
Okay, so I have been crawling around the forums for days now trying to find a solution to my problem. It should be noted I am fairly new to linux and will need step by step noob instructions most likely. If you need any more information from me, don't hesitate to ask. I have 2 partitions set on my rather small hdd. 4gb set for Puppy Linux at /dev/sda3 (ext3) and my main partition has Ubuntu installed /dev/sda1 (ext4). I am having trouble dual booting with puppy linux. I have installed Puppy Linux on the partitoin sda3 with a usb boot disk I created with unetbootin. After referring to this article:http://blog.kreatx.com/2011/12/16/du...x-with-ubuntu/ I followed all the steps (although had some issues with vim so i just manually edited the files) and have messed with my grub file in /boot/grub/grub.cfg (mostly changing the lines concerning Puppy Linux, changing the (hdo,msdos1) to match the lines with the msdosX to ubuntu's like the article mentioned to do) Now when I boot up I want to h

location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 18, 2006
I'm trying to work out how to get dual monitors working on ubuntu 6.06. I'm using two identical flat screen 17" and an nvidia 6600 gfx card. Could someone point me in the right direction. I need the desktop to extend across the two monitors not replicate whats on the first one.
Cheers in advance.
