    How to setup a dual monitor Ubuntu Wiki

    I put several hours into adding a "How to setup a dual monitor" in Ubuntu's Wiki. I hope this will help other people. I know if I would have been able to read this that it would have saved me a lot of time. I hope this saves other people time.

    I just updated the .xprofile information. I added information on how to set a primary monitor.

    Code:
      xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1024x768 --rate 60
    
      #Laptop right extra Monitor Left
      #xrandr --output VGA1 --left-of LVDS1
    
      #Laptop left extra Monitor right
      #xrandr --output LVDS1 --left-of VGA1
    
      #This is to set your primary monitor.
      
      #This sets your laptop monitor as your primary monitor. 
      xrandr --output LVDS1 --primary
      
      #This sets your VGA monitor as your primary monitor. 
      #xrandr --output VGA1 --primary
