    Unhappy Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Duel screens not working?

    First post, please tell me if I'm doing something wrong.

    I have a GeForce GTX560 Ti graphics card and two acer monitors, but for some reason Ubuntu will only use one of them (It's a duel-boot and Windows 7 recognizes both screens). For a little while it used both, but I rebooted it and now it doesn't. Am I missing a driver for the GTX560 or something? I've been looking for an answer online and have been unable to find one.... Thanks in advance!

    I fixed mine by enabling the second one in the Nvidia control panel.

    System -> Nvidia X Server Settings

    If you click the display tab you can enable your second monitor.
