Image only appears on second monitor.

Postby Serge2702 on Mon Feb 03, 2014 10:13 pm

Hello. A friend had Windows 7 and Ubuntu 8 in his HP laptop core i5 without graphic card. We tried to replace Ubuntu with Mint 16 cinnamon, but when we boot the live CD, the image doesn't appear in the laptop's LCD, it only appears on an external monitor. Image only appears on the LCD If we open a virtual console (Ctrl+Alt+F2) and startx there. What could be the source of this problem?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I think there is some issue with MDM which starts in second monitor. But after logging in, you should be able to change Display from settings?
