Hi all. Sorry if this has been dealt with before, but I'm having a problem with dual monitors using BigDesktop. I went through the BigDesktop HowTo (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=1773544) and got it to work, but my monitor is on the wrong side. I changed the DesktopSetup option to "horizontal,reverse" and it didn't reverse my monitors.

Just to test it out, I changed it to "vertical,reverse" and my monitor configuration is still horizontal, normal. Is there any reason it would ignore changes made to xorg.conf? Sorry, I'm still sort of a newb.

Oh, and I tried this before restarting the X server and rebooting the machine, but it didn't work.

If it matters, I have a Dell Inspiron E1505 with an ATI Radeon x1300.

You can do that in the Catalyst Control Center.
