    dual monitors do not work in installed mode

    AZUS laptop and XUBUNTU(11.10) running off the live CD will give me my dual monitors, but when I install xubuntu I can not set up dual monitors. When I boot from the live CD both monitors come on even before it is fully booted. But in installed mode "desktop" and "grandr" says only one monitor. The "NVIDIA X Settings" show 2 monitors,(CRT-0- (ViewSonic VX1937), and DFP-0-(Apple Color LCD), but the CRT-0- has no information in it's window and the "Reset Hardware Defaults" button is grayed out.

    You need to run the setup utility with sudo.
    If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is definitely not for you.
