Reddit: how to run Xorg when the monitor unplugged?

1 hour 50 min ago

I have a question: how to run Xorg if my monitor unplugged and if I use lighdm?

My configuration:

two videocards to use pci passtrough technology. Sometimes I passthrough powerfull video card in the Virtual machine. In another time, I preffer to run Xorg in my second videocard. In this case I use xorg.conf:

Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "Layout0" Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0 EndSection Section "Module" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Monitor0" Option "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor" Option "DPMS" "true" Option "IgnoreEDID" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Device0" Driver "nvidia" BusID "PCI:01:00:0" Option "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0 { ForceFullCompositionPipeline = On }" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Screen0" Device "Device0" Monitor "Monitor0" DefaultDepth 24 SubSection "Display" Viewport 0 0 Depth 24 EndSubSection EndSection

And all works, excluding a case when my monitor unplugged from this (second) videocard. In this case Xorg starts in the first videocard in failsafe mode (and In xorg.log I see a fail attempt to run Xorg - because no monitor found).

I want to enforce run Xorg and ignore unplugged monitor. The

Option "IgnoreEDID"

can't help.

When I forget to press a button in my HDMI switch, I should restart PC or login in console and run

sleep 3; systemctl restart lightdm

It's not convinient

Probably I found solution only for the gdm(but I not tested it):

https://exain.wordpress.com/2009/11/19/booting-ubuntu-without-monitor-plugged-in-switched-off/

But I want to still use lighdm instead of GDM.

So, my final question: How to run xorg+lightdm and ignore unplugged status of the monitor?

  • Chrome OS Gets Material Design for "Do Not Disturb," Android-Like Screenshots

    Chromium evangelist François Beaufort is sharing today information on a new Material Design refresh for Google's Chrome OS' "Do Not Disturb" mode, which landed in the latest Chrome Canary channel.

    According to the developer, the Material Design refresh for the "Do Not Disturb" mode will make the Notification Center look nicer, but also consistent with the Android user experience. Those using the Chrome Canary experimental channel can give it a try right now.

  • System76 'Lemur' and 'Galago Pro' Ubuntu Linux laptops get 8th gen Intel Core CPUs

    The famed Linux-laptop seller also says, "The Lemur you know and love is now even better with the Intel 8th Gen Coffee Lake CPU with 4 cores and 8 threads, allowing you to multitask up to 40-percent faster. The slim, 3.6 lb laptop with impressive 14.1-inch 1080p IPS display is still your perfect travel companion; easy to carry from meeting to meeting or across campus."

    New processors aside, these laptops should be pretty much identical to prior generations -- which is a very good thing. If you want to configure a Lemur with a Coffee Lake chip, you can build your own here. A Galago Pro with an 8th Gen Intel Core processor can be configured here.

TuxMachines: Licences: Eclipse Public Licence 2.0, GPL Copyright Troll, Fiduciary License Agreement 2.0

1 hour 56 min ago
  • Eclipse Public License version 2.0 added to license list

    We recently updated our list of various licenses and comments about them to include the Eclipse Public License version 2.0 (EPL).

  • Linux kernel community tries to castrate GPL copyright troll

    Linux kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman and several other senior Linux figures have published a “Linux Kernel Community Enforcement Statement” to be included in future Linux documentation, in order to ensure contributions to the kernel don't fall foul of copyright claims that have already seen a single developer win "at least a few million Euros.”

    In a post released on Monday, October 16th, Kroah-Hartman explained the Statement's needed because not everyone who contributes to the kernel understands the obligations the GNU Public Licence 2.0 (GPL 2.0), and the licence has “ambiguities … that no one in our community has ever considered part of compliance.”

  • Fiduciary License Agreement 2.0

    After many years of working on it, it is with immense pleasure to see the FLA-2.0 – the full rewrite of the Fiduciary License Agreement – officially launch.

I am currently studying in university, not much money I got, but really appreciate the hardwork of libreoffice and linux mint team and many others.

Or should I donate to individual software team.
