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. Right click again on the end (making sure not to hit any other widget in the panel) and click on Expand again.

This depends on how your dual-monitors are setup. If you are using XINERAMA to make both displays look like one to X, then you would use the -geometry option to ask applications to appear at a specific location. If you have the displays setup as different screens then you will use the DISPLAY to achieve this. Give these a try: $ DISPLAY=0.0 xterm & ...

No, you can't do that directly. In the X architecture, the two physical monitors you see are not discernible by applications. You can only work your way around this abstraction, by determining which areas of the visible workspace correspond to which monitor and then place windows at the correct offset. Sensible toolkits support a -geometry option, which ...

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 ...

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

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 can't tell what your monitor names are, so adapt to this line of code. xrandr --output (mon1) --left-of (mon2)

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

ssh forwarding does not forward the entire "session" (as in "Desktop") instead it forwards X-calls which then draw the window using your local window manager.

This is a window manager specific solution. This is how to do it with kwin which is KDE's default window manager. If you right click on the application Title Bar and select more settings -> special application settings. Go to Window matching tab. Click on Detect Window Properties button. Then with mouse cursor click on application main window. It will ...

I did come across this method which makes use of xdotool, xprop, & wmctrl. Here’s what the below script will do: Find the active window Get its maximized state and remember it Remove maximization Get its geometry Calculate the new position Move it Maximize based on the previous state Raise it Here’s a script that does that: script This will move ...

xrandr --output DP-0 --auto --same-as LVDS-0 You can use xrandr to change your display settings without much effort. Generally I find that it gives more options then GUI tools. You will need to change DP-0 and LVDS-0 to match your display names. Those are mine from my MBP with the external monitor plugged in the display port.

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.
