xrandr NOT Detecting My Laptop's Internal Display?
For some reason when I issue a "xrandr -q" it only show the resolutions/modes for my External LCD Monitor that is connected (through Docking Station).
Laptop Model: Dell Latitude E6510
OS: openSUSE 11.4 i586
External Monitor: Acer AL2216W 22"
GPU: NVS 3100M
Driver: Nvidia Driver Version 295.40
I hope that is enough info...
And here's the output of xrandr -q:
Any suggestions would be great.
Thanks in Advance,
Note that as you're using the Nvidia driver, it is controlled by its own program, "nvidia-xconfig". Open a terminal and look at "man nvidia-xconfig" and also look at the Nvidia README with its appendices.
"xrandr" apparently still has some function along with "nvidia-xconfig", giving you several possibilities at the price of more complexity.
Among other things, you can use the Nvidia program to specify and set resolutions for different monitors, manage TwinView, and also create an "xorg.conf" file that you can then edit. "xorg.conf" isn't otherwise and naturally generated on installing the Nvidia driver.
The README is quite detailed and the command options it documents are quite powerful. I would say READIT and pay attention to the appendices.
Hey thorkelljarl, thanks for the reply...
Yea, I have used the nvidia-xconfig command before and I thought that it was basically just for editing the xorg.conf file. Is that correct..?
So far while playing around with a monitor and a docking station I've come across the following (and tried using them ALOT):
- cvt and glxinfo
...and probably a few more I can't think of at the moment...
But anyway, I was just curious to know why it was only showing the "external" monitor and its resolution and not my Laptop's monitor as well.
So is xrandr basically becoming extinct?
Thanks again for you reply. And I will take a look at the nvidia-xconfig README, thanks.
