I've updated the title of the topic to include the graphics card you have. The problem is you are running with a vesa driver, instead of a driver specific for your graphics card. It seems you need to install a different graphics card driver to be able to use the 2nd display properly. The website http://ajoliveira.com/ajoliveira/uk/software/xorg.php
looks to explains how to do that and has the needed programs for download.
As always when messing with the innards of the system, please backup any personal documents before attempting to do this. As a reassurance, if it doesn't work and your system refuses to boot, we'll be able to solve that from the recovery mode. But better safe than sorry.
Summarizing the steps specific for Maya 32 bit, start with downloading this file: http://ajoliveira.com/ajoliveira/gen/bi ... .04.tar.gz
Then to install, open a terminal on the directory where you have downloaded the files (in your file manager you can do that from the menu File > Open in Terminal) and run each of the following four commands in the order shown:
- Code: Select all
gzip -dc sis_driver_32-bit_12.04.tar.gz | tar -xf -
sudo cp 32-bit/*.so /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers
sudo cp 32-bit/*.la /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers
sudo cp 32-bit/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf
The first sudo command will ask for your password, but will not show any feedback when typing your password. Just so you know the keyboard didn't suddenly break
Upon reboot you should be using the sis671 driver instead of vesa, you can check by running the inxi command again I shared.
Note that the sis671 driver only does 2d graphics, and you won't have hardware accelerated 3d graphics capability. This probably means you won't be able to run Compiz, if you were intending to do so. The current Cinnamon version will also not work, though the next version will hopefully also work with 2d graphics only.
