Hi,

I'm running ubuntu 904 on HP elitebook 8730 w with ATI firegl 5725. I am using the ATI/AMD proprietary fglrx graphics driver which works fine.

Now, I'm needing to use projector at work and I've tried numerous suggestions both from this forum and from others.

None of them have worked for me, although some of the suggestions were very good. At one point I was able to see both crt1 and lvds but just can't seem to get over the hurdle by myself.

Thanks in advance.
