Mint 12 & Lenovo docking station
Just installed Mint 12 on my Lenovo W520 i7. Flawless install - all laptop hardware recognized.
I plugged it into my Docking Station 3 and it fails to output a display to my Acer monitor. I'm using the VGA out to the monitor.
I tried the 'Detect other Displays' in the 'Display' settings in Mint, but it didn't recognize any.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
Ditch the docking station. Then see what happens. You should completely shut down Linux as a precaution before removing the docking station.
Keep it simple, just plug in your accessories into your laptop as you would do so in a desktop. Its "old school" & you have to remove them after a shutdown if you want to travel with your laptop. Still, sometimes simple is better.
I sometimes just suspend to RAM if I'm removing the computer, but do a total shutdown when putting everything back after bringing the laptop home.
Its safest to shutdown and restart, however.
