  • Linux Lite: 3.6 32bit
I recently installed a third monitor and it was working fine.  I noticed though that every time I restarted my computer, I would have to fiddle with the display settings in order for it to work.  I would have to disable/re-enable the monitor, move the 3 around so that they were in the right order or some other things too in order for it to be the way I wanted it.  Those settings would never stick and finally now the last few times I started my desktop, I can't get anything to display on the third monitor.  The third monitor has always been labeled as a "digital display" and not the actual name.  But, when I got it working, it worked great.

I'm really not sure what's going on or why it works sometimes but not all the time.  I used to have linux mint and it worked fine with that. 

Here are some more details...
