Getting Projectors to Work in Ubuntu

SkyHi @ Monday, March 29, 2010

Believe it or not, I suck at X configurations. I really do. I don't have the time to study more about X so I took the easy way out.

1. Connect the projector to your laptop.

2. Do this in command line.

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

3. Just press Enter through every screen.

4. Restart X for the changes to take effect by pressing CTRL + ALT + BACKSPACE.

5. Log in again as you always do.

6. And finally, the projector will automagically display your Ubuntu desktop and you can show off your desktop effects to your co-workers.
