Ubuntu 12.04 freezing with dual monitors fix

May 4th, 2012 | Posted by spritian in Linux | Ubuntu

I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04 but found myself super frustrated to see my laptop lockup immediately after logging in via the GUI. It turned out to be an issue with the intel driver and dual monitors…

There was reported success by downgrading xserver-xorg-input-evdev, with the version you can find here:

It works! I now have dual monitors again! :)
