Computer is Acer Aspire 5738Z
T.V is Panasonic TH-42PZ81B
He emailed that Linux hadn't seen it. I rang him and talked him through looking at the Display settings and Linux has detected a Panasonic 32" T.V. Nothing shows on the T.V screen at all - no wallpaper and no mouse pointer but if he moves his mouse to the right of his laptop screen it does disappear off it without appearing on the T.V.
I got him to run
Code: Select all
He got in a mess after that so ended up shutting it down.Graphics:Card: Intel Mobile 4 Series Integrated Graphics Controller
Display Server: X.Org 1.18.3 drivers: intel (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Mobile Intel GM45 Express
GLX Version: 2.1 Mesa 11.2.0 Direct Rendering: Yes
I have never had this sort of problem over many years and many desktop and laptop machines.
I am thinking I will go visit him and try to fix his problem and just wonder if anyone knows how to fix it or just some ideas I could try.
As he is completely new to Linux I think it would be too much for him to do more himself.
