Hello!

Sorry if this has been answered before but I can't seem to fix this problem on my own.

Ok, I've plugged a screen into my laptop via VGA. After restarting X the desktop shows up on the external monitor but a funky shade of green, no panels and the wrong resolution.

Running xranr -q gives:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 800, maximum 1280 x 800
default connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1280x800 60.0*
1280x768 60.0
1280x720 60.0
1024x768 75.0 72.0 70.0 60.0
800x600 75.0 72.0 70.0 60.0 56.0
720x480 60.0
640x480 75.0 72.0 60.0
640x400 75.0 60.0
512x384 75.0 60.0
400x300 75.0 60.0
320x240 75.0 60.0
320x200 75.0 60.0

Any help would be most appreciated!
