Hi there dear dear Ubuntu community.
I love my Ubuntu, i really do,
but for some reason i can't "dual monitor" it with an external monitor.
Whenever i connect my external screen and enable it on the Display prefeneces, my ubuntu asks me if i want to enable "virtual resolution", if i don't the external screen is not working and if i do enable it tells me to logout and login again and then does nothing (after logging in) besides screw up my Compiz.
I've had to restore my xorg a couple of time before writing this lines.
Please can someone help me?
Oh and another question - i am going to study computer science and wanted to know if Ubuntu will be good enough for everything (VS2005 replacement etc.)
Thanks everyone who answers so much.
