Is there a way to fool kubuntu into thinking that a 3rd monitor on a hardware switch is the same monitor - same screen resolution etc? And therefore be able to switch between a second and third monitor? I know there must be to be honest as I've had it working for a while but since move from unity to kde after a week it has stopped working.
Nvidia GT 705 Graphics card - supports two monitors at any one time.
Tried the 3rd monitor and it does show a display but not when switching. Only when a dual monitor set is in place.
The 3rd monitor can support 16:9 as it is a tv with vga connection. I have however got it set to 1024*768 to use for both - this previously working.
can get it to work up until the point I actually login. I can do this by delete .config/monitors.xml and setting resolution to 1024*768 instead of auto and refresh to 60Hz instead of auto. And then saving the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file without merging the file. Then reboot and dual screen on third monitor appears - I login: then blank screen again. Input can't be handled. Clearly seems to be down to resolution and refresh rate being reset on login . Any suggestions?
N.B. Works in windows 8.1
Please can anyone help?
