theSuperman Posted May 7, 2010 Share Posted May 7, 2010 Well I have tried this question over at ubuntuforums, however it has not gotten any responses. Has anyone been using Lucid Lynx and noticed something weird when running xrandr without parameters? I posted a youtube video of what occurs when I run it: I used the following line to activate my external monitor and disable my internal one: 'xrandr --output VGA1 --auto --output LVDS1 --off' Then, if I run 'xrandr' without any other parameters, it activates my internal screen (LVDS), makes that the primary monitor, and sets my external display to be an extended desktop. I also had this problem in Karmic, but it wasnt as bad. See, the same thing occurs if I run 'totem,' 'compiz --replace,' or 'wine,' which makes absolutely no sense. And there's nothing out of the ordinary in the Xorg log. Can anyone offer insight of what could be causing this? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
