Dual Monitor problem

Postby aShoe » Sun Jun 21, 2009 9:39 am

Hello I have a similar problem. I am trying to use my tv as an external monitor but cannot get proper resolution for the screen. I've added new resolutions to the xorg.conf file already but they were only applied to the laptop monitor. How do I add resolutions for the external monitor?

Please make a new post for a new problem - don't just add to another topic
The topic you added this post to had nothing what so ever to do with dual monitors
Topic split
You have to tell us more facts.
The minimum is exactly which Mint you have - which version and which edition (main or any of the CEs)
We also need to know a bit about all your hardware.
Run " lspci " in a terminal and post here (to avoid misunderstanding - the first character is a minor L and you copy by marking with the mouse and then right click)
Some wifi and possibly built in sound can be connected to USB even if they are internal - if you suspect you have one of these run " lsusb " in a terminal.
Also tell us if this is using mint4win or not, quite important
This is a standard answer so it may not be fully applicable to your situation
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
