I am running xfce (xubuntu) 8.04 and am trying to set up dual monitors. My laptop has a vga-out connnector.

All i need it to do is mirror what I show on my laptop, not extend the desktop. I cannot seem to find any setting to enable the second monitor.


thanks

Hi and what is the model of the graphics card, if nvidia then you may try the nvidia settings. You may also try the command
gksu displayconfig-gtk and add your external monitor there.
