Having a single Thunderbolt port does not mean that you can connect only one Thunderbolt display. Thunderbolt can be daisy-chained. Multiple displays are possible via a single Thunderbolt port. I do not know whether Linux supports daisy-chained Thunderbolt displays. And of course I do not know whether Thunderbolt daisy-chaining is an option for you, as far ...

Short answer: yes, you can do this. I have my (Fedora) desktop set up this way, each monitor is an independent display. It is the same 'desktop', in the X sense, but there are some limitations to typical desktop functionality with this setup versus the 'single desktop spread over two monitors' configuration. [For example, you can't drag a window from one ...

To move it to a different monitor, right click on an empty area, select "Properties" and then uncheck the 'Expand' box. Now left click on the end one of the ends and drag it to a different monitor.

I cant leave comments yet, but is the screen connected via VGA, DVI. HDMI (Type B). The problem may be elsewhere but if you have different display ports and have a different cable connect the screen just to check. Try lowering the resolution, do you get any Ghosting? Try Recommendations for your screen Model from Dell

there is a hex hack for the libflashplayer.so around, you can try http://simonmott.co.uk/blog/view/11 for a possible version. the idea is to open libflashplayer.so or libgcflashplayer.so and search it for _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW and replace one of the letters, for example to _AET_ACTIVE_WINDOW that will fix the issue of closing fullscreen flash when losing ...

In the search bar type displays. Depending on your version of gnome 3, it will either show two displays that you can drag around to your liking, or it may have a button with "arrange combined displays". Sometimes on nvidia cards the display menu won't do anything. I have had that in the past, what you do is search for nvidia and there should be an ...

I've resolved that issue, I've put xorg config file into etc/bumblebee/xorg.conf.d/ where I've found some another similar file, that file was parsed because xinit raised appropriate error when I've inserted there syntax error, but somehow settings there were overridden by default config or were just ignored. I've moved my newly created 10-nvidia.conf file to ...

It's a common Debian problem, you could try the following: Edit /etc/apt/sources.list Comment out all sources from /etc/apt/sources.list Add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list : "deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian wheezy-backports main" save, exit your editor from the command line "apt-get update" launch synaptic package manager search ...

You could write your own script and use xrandr. examples: check if new monitor is connected: xrandr | grep -i conntected But you can grep your new monitor. xrandr | grep -i "The name of your monitor" So if the command: xrandr | grep -i "the name of your monitor" is true do something with it. if (xrandr | grep -i "connected"); then ...

The default dwm behaviour is to open applications, with a rule or not, on the monitor/screen that has focus. To open Surf on the third tag of the currently focussed monitor, the rule would be: { "Surf", NULL, NULL, 1 << 2, True, -1 }, To open VLC on the second tag of the primary monitor, irrespective of where the ...

Well, I just found shutter, a nifty tool that can do this. You can install on Debian-based systems with sudo apt-get install shutter Then, once you launch shutter, take your screenshot limiting it to the active monitor only: I just checked and it works perfectly on my LMDE running Cinnamon, it correctly took screenshots of the monitor where my mouse ...

The following lines appeared in udevadm monitor KERNEL[46578.184280] change /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/drm/card0 (drm) UDEV [46578.195887] change /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0/drm/card0 (drm) when attaching a monitor to the VGA-Connector. So there might be a way to figure this out.
