    need help with dual monitor setup

    i'm a newbie and have just installed ubuntu 8.04 on my pc.

    i've also installed the new catalyst 8.7, my video card is the hd4850.

    i'm trying to setup dual monitor. i have a 24" lcd and a 17" crt.

    i tried setting up dual monitor in the catalyst control centre -> display manager, but it detects my lcd as monitor 2 and crt as monitor 1 when i select the identify display button.

    the problem is in ccc my lcd is monitor 1 and crt, monitor 2.

    because of this i cant set both monitors as one big display. the computer thinks my lcd is the crt and vice versa.

    can anybody help me please?

    You can swap that around in the CCC, you can just drag the 2 box to the left in the display manager screen and they will swap. It worked for me when I set up my 24 and 19 inch monitors for big desktop with my HD3650.
