    9.04 Intel Dual monitor: grandr sees only one monitor ?

    At the office, I want to configure my Xubuntu to use both monitors independantly (dual monitor). I have followed a few links but grandr still only sees one monitor.

    I tried gksu displayconfig-gtk but it did nothing (nothing shown, nothing displayed, nothing asked, ...)
