I am running Ubuntu 9.04 from a Toshiba Satellite laptop, and recently came across an extra monitor. I got the thing set up so that it works, but the desktop picture only covers about 3/4 of the laptop screen.

The laptop has a widescreen, and the other monitor is a fullscreen. It appears as if the picture on the laptop screen is being treated as the fullscreen image. When I drag a window onto the other screen and back again, images of the window stay on the screen.

Anyone know what is going on here?

Thanks
