GKSU cant´t config ATI Radeon 9600 Xinerma

Asked by Nio on 2007-10-21

sorry for bad English, I´m from Germany;-)

My Problem: I want to config my Graphic Card, the ATI Radeon 9600 Series for Xinerma. But I can´t, the second screen is greyd out. I´m only able to use the screen as main screen, but that don´t makes a difference.

Maybe it would be better to use SAX2 from Open SuSE?

bye; Nicolas T.

There isn´t any difference between the open source and the official driver.

Yes; this is reproducible with 7.10 and 8.04.

I have installed the fglrx-driver
In 8.04 I first started displayconfig-gtk via sudo. After that I had choosen the second screen in the list and tryed to set him as second Screen (on the screenshot: "Zweitbildschirm", I dont know how this is called in the english version), but the text and the Point in front of it was gray.

The newer tool from 8.04, gnome-display-prperties sadly can´t detect, that I have 2 Screens.

And I have 1 Digital Screen; The Samsung SyncMaster 931BF via DVI (1280x1024) and 1 analog 17^ Screen. (1024x768)

the issue is rather an user questions about the tools and driver to use than a GNOME bug

Dear Nio,

My friend had this problem and it was solved by upgrading to 9.04.

Many blessings.
