Took a stab at ubuntu again the other day. Installed fine, booted up, it decided to mirror my dual monitors. I switched them to side-by-side, and it made me reboot. Rebooted, and it had them swapped- left one was on the right. I dragged one to the right place, and suddenly my mouse was stuck on the screen with no menubar. Force-restarted, logged into a shell, deleted everything even remotely looking like a display preference, logged into my mirrored system, tried again, same problem. Deleted ubuntu.

Ubuntu works well if you the most standard computer ever. If it's less normal, you're likely to hit some miserable problems.

I’ve had the same problem with dual monitors on Windows (XP and Vista, unsure about Windoze 7) systems.

Every other time the computer was restarted, the monitors came up transposed. This was with stock configuration computers (ThinkPad and an HP dual Xeon workstation).

Lousy stinking spammers. Just when you think you've found a new acquaintance. :cry:

Anyone posting from an IP at Softlayer is a fucking spammer, period. Softlayer may today be less of a spam and abuse catastrophe than my experience taught me about them many years ago, but pretty much zero humans live in big data centers, and at this time participation here is intended for humans. That's not to discriminate against other life forms or artificial intelligences, it's just that there aren't many intelligences likely to exist in big data centers which will have the wherewithal to productively contribute here, and until there are any account registering from such a place will be scrubbed from existence.

That spammer will NOT be back.
