Re: Setting up multiple screens.

I have the same problem in every single Linux mint starting from 17.3 Mate. 17.2 Mate is the only one that has separate x-screen working perfectly, but it is very old OS. Same thing happens in Ubuntu. I have GeForce GTX 1050, but same problem with older GTX-models. If someone can solve this problem,...

Re: XFCE 18.3 + compiz - mate-panel starting only on first desktop

Separate x screen does not work in Mate.

Well I am now learning how to modify these XFCE-panels, and they kind of work, have to live with these for now...

If I remember correctly, in Xubuntu these panels automatically start on both desktops, if someone else is trying to do similar thing.

Nvidia GTX-sarjan näytönohjain ja Mint 18 + dual xscreen. Toimiiko kenelläkään?

Olisin kiinnostunut onko kellään toimivaa komboa jolla saisi esim Nvidian GTX-sarjan näytönohjaimen ja dual xscreenin toimimaan. Tietenkin Nvidian omalla suljetulla ajurilla. Eli mulla on 2 monitoria, ja tarve saada molemmille monitoreille oma työpöytä, niin että compizilla saan kaksi työpöytäkuutio...

Does anyone have mint 18.x working with multiple monitor with Nvidia card and separate Xscreen?

I need to install Mint 18.x, for getting Opera updated. (libdbus-1-3 too lo...

Re: Mint 18.3 (17.3-18.3) Mate + GTX 460 twin monitor setup problem (separate x-screen), monitor 2 not recognized

Mint 17.2 has following specs: Driver version 384.90 Xserver 1.15.1 And that combination works. Mint 17.3 has: Driver version 384.90 Xserver 1.17.1 And that does not work. So something went wrong between Xserver 1.15.1 and 1.17.1 Mint 18.3 has: Driver version 384.90 Xserver 1.18.4 Also that does not...

Re: Mint 17.2 Mate. --> Compiz can not start on second desktop (2 monitor setup)

Actually what I just found out is I can set these Compiz-effects up by running on main monitor:

Code: Select all

DISPLAY=:0.1 ccsm
OR go to the second monitor and just:

Code: Select all

ccsm
and just add settings

That is it!

But how did I not see this, I have been trying to fix this for days now... :roll:

Re: USB 3.0 card disables suspend / Mint 17 Mate / Asus MB

I will do that, it is weird that this worked in my previous Asrock MB out of the box.

I think this is all we can do for now, I will take the card out.
