I have been battling the stupid issue with a secondary monitor for weeks.
I have dual Viewsonic LED monitors the primary works just fine. As soon as I hook a secondary on the resolutions dont match. I have to scale down from 1920x1080 to 1620x1050 so the screens fits in the monitor other wise the borders go over the monitor. Also the icons look bigger as if the monitor is not running on the same bit resolution.
I can hook up other monitors and it works well so is not the video card. Also i swap this monitor twice so is not the monitors ether... It am sure it has to do with nvidia drivers. Please help.

SO my Dell XPS M1730 died last weekend and I am left with no computer... Looking for a rather quick replacement, I have purchased a toshiba L755D-04V with possibility to return it within 2 weeks for full refund if Im not satisfied with it.
Basically, the machine will be used (except to replace my older laptop) to:

Run openoffice & libreoffice
Run math software such as GNU Octave & R (statistics)
COmpile my own packages (I install everything from source)
Play MP3 & browse the web.
The machine will run Slackware64.
No gaming at all (ok maybe Mahjong.. but I want something decently fast and responsive, especially when I have 10+ Firefox tabs or Im playing a 1080p movie & do something else at the same time...
This machine has the following hardware specs:
Processor Type AMD Sabine Quad-Core Mobile A8-3520M

[SOLVED] Help me remember name of dual boot utility
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 3, 2013
I have a Windows 7 laptop which I've also installed Kubuntu 13.04 onto. However, it still only boots to Windows 7 without giving you any option to choose Kubuntu. (You can see my conversation about my install here: http://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthr...766#post330766 )
Some years back, I set up a tri-boot desktop PC with Ubuntu 8.04, Windows 7, and Windows XP. Ubuntu was installed on the primary drive and was the only OS on it while 7 and XP were installed on a secondary drive. On the primary drive I edited Grub to give the user a choice between Ubuntu or 7. If the user chose Windows, it went to the secondary drive and gave the user the choice of 7 or XP. For the secondary drive, I used a utility to edit some kind of boot file to give the person that choice.
That's where my problem comes in. I don't remember the name of the utility. I remember you could use it to give users the choice of Windows or Linux. I think it's likely what I need here because I don't think this b

I am a new user to Linux.I have the Linux Ubuntu 12.04 LTS version, and I would like to add my Ener The Matrix and San Andreas video games onto this system.

[SOLVED] Help me find a reliable way to play Youtube through Jack audio
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 11, 2014
I have been trying to figure this out for a few weeks. I am currently running Crunchbang linux on my laptop and I use it to record music and play guitar through Guitarix. To run Guitarix I need to use Jack audio server. When Jack is running I can't playback Youtube videos, which I need to do to play along to lessons.
I have tried:
1. playing back youtube in VLC which I can't get to work
2. Jack Flash plug in. I found some threads about this from 2009 and the plug in doesn't install on Crunchbang.
3. Downloading youtube videos to playback in VLC with smtube and youtube-dl and can't get either to install on Crunchbang.
Any thoughts on how to get this working?
