    Dual Monitors 8.10 on ATI card

    I have an ATI HIS X1550 graphics card and I am trying to use dual monitors. Any suggestions on how to do so? Everything I see is for nvidia cards.

    Sort of like the "Extend my Desktop to this Monitor" in Vista.

    Find the drivers for your card first. You may be able to configure it anyway with System >> administeration >> Screen Resolution. and Click "Clone Monitors". That's all I know right now. I'll look into it tomorrow, I'm going to sleep now.

    This one was a very hard one for me and I could not find an answer anywhere; however, I've successfully done it. I installed EnvyNG. Here is the website I followed.

    EnvyNG worked like a charm. Here's some quick instructions for the post:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install envyng-core envyng-gtk envyng-qt
    The ATI settings were in Applications > Accessories > ATI Catalyst Control Center.

    Thanks!
