I use a KVM switch and in order to get Ubuntu to recognise the monitor
correctly I find it is necessary to have the Ubuntu box selected during
the boot and login process. Thus I have to switch the boxes on in
1. Turn on first box and make sure KVM is switched to it. Complete the
boot and login processes
2. Turn on secong box and make sure KVM is switched to it. Complete the
boot and login processes
3. Turn on the XP box (This does not need the KVM to be switched to it ,
apart from when loggin on)
I think the problem is the KVM boxes present a default monitor to the
systems which are not selected.

I just built a new system, and Ubuntu is giving me fits because of
Nvidia. I wanted to avoid Nvidia, but when you try to find a good
low/medium cost system with decent performance it seems to be the only
Ubuntu 8.04.01-alternate-amd64 has problems which I described in the
thread "New System Problem", and couldn't solve.
I've backed off to 32 bit and installed Ubuntu 8.04.1-desktop-i386.
Still having problems.
First its stuck at 800x600 max.
I tried the "System > Administration > Hardware Drivers" method from
and tried using Envy.
I have a second machine, a KVM switch and second LCD panel, so I've
swapped out just about everything. The only thing I haven't done is
the new 1680x1050 LCD on the old machine.
I guess you by now have gone by this steps, but i've found that many KVM
suck at sending the correct info to the GPU.
When I find this kind of trouble, I just connect the monitor/projector
directly to the GPU, let Ubuntu configure it the best way possible, and
then reconnect the KVM.
It as always worked for me, but even doing this, sometimes after a power
cycle some systems fail, and I have to redo the work.
