Login screen resolution incorrect, ok once logged in

Postby Nick Payne on Sat Nov 24, 2012 6:14 pm

Linux Mint 14 with the Nouveau driver and an nVidia GTS250 dual head card. Monitors are a Dell U3011 30" monitor and a Dell U2311 23" monitor both connected via DVI, with the 2311 in portrait orientation. I've configured Displays in System Settings so that the monitors are unmirrored and both in the correct orientation and resolution, and everything is fine once logged in, but at bootup the login screen still has a) the monitors mirrored with the 3011 monitor limited to the resolution of the 2311 b) the login dialog on the 2311 monitor is sideways because of the portrait orientation, and c) the userid doesn't display in the login dialog when entered.

How do I get the display resolution and orientation to be correct before login?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
