dual display Woes in Mint6 using nvidia 9800GT

Postby dave.leblanc on Mon Aug 10, 2009 6:41 pm

Hey all I'm running Minx6 X64 on my machine with an Nvidia 9800GT Video card

I'm attempting to plug in a second monitor today into the DVI port and I'm not getting any signal and the screen resolution settings does not detect the monitor automatically like my notebook(also running mint 6) does

here is the lspci output from my trouble machine

Which editions do you run? (main, KDE, other)
Do you still get image from the VGA connector?
The DVI-i has analog in it - are you sure you are trying to use the digital signal (that should be the case)
Have you tried to use nvidia-settings (as root)
Code: Select all
gksu nvidia-settings
Image
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
