When I connect my laptop to a projector before I turn on my computer, it works perfectly all the way to the login screen. The moment I log in, the projector loose the signal. When I try to edit my settings, I sometimes manage to get it to work, but it requires some automatic editing of a config file, and then i have to log out and back in. This sometimes work, but not always. When it works, however, it often cut some of the picture, and the resolution is low. I find this strange because it works perfectly during boot and all the way to login without any configuration. Is there any way to solve this? I am using Linux Mint Gloria.
I won't be able to use the projector for some time now. It's on my school, and I can't just use it when I want to.
Regarding the driver: After some googling, I tried apt-get install xorg-driver-fglrx. It installed just fine, but when I restarted the system, it couldn't start X. Luckily I managed to remove it again. Is this what you ment with "the open source drivers", or is that something else?
