I have a dual-head NVIDIA (GeForce GT520) graphics card and an onboard Intel graphics controller. I’ve been using two monitors connected to my NVIDIA card which has worked fine but now I got a third monitor which I have connected to the on board card and I’m wondering how I can make it to be part of my display configuration (in Plasma).
I do see the the adapter in my system as it is shown as “2nd Generation Core Processor Family Inegrated Graphics Controller (Intel Corporation)” with what seems like '
video-linux' drivers associated. I see this in Plasma under Hardware Configuration.
Some further details about my setup:
sudo lshw -C video *-display description: VGA compatible controller product: GF119 [GeForce GT 520] vendor: NVIDIA Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0 version: a1 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=nvidia latency=0 resources: irq:43 memory:fa000000-faffffff memory:d0000000-d7ffffff memory:d8000000-d9ffffff ioport:e000(size=128) memory:c0000-dffff *-display description: Display controller product: 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 2 bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0 version: 09 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: msi pm bus_master cap_list configuration: driver=i915 latency=0 resources: irq:41 memory:fb400000-fb7fffff memory:c0000000-cfffffff ioport:f000(size=64)
Now, I can right click onto '
video-linux' and it gives me options to “remove” or “reinstall” but I haven’t selected reinstall as I don’t want to risk, losing my display by “trying around”. Can I add the Linux card to
/etc/X11/xorg.conf instead? How do I do that? And will it take precedence over configuration in
or is that wehre I add my config instead?
