Got a new HP 6530b laptop.
I attached a 1920x1080 monitor to the vga out, configured it with the util System->Preferences->Monitor Resolution.
This is my xorg.conf
Everything was working (but compiz,that is not a problem).
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
Virtual 3200 1080
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Option "UseFBDev" "true"
Yesterday i used the laptop for some time, without attaching it to the 2nd screen (I did it several times before not having any problem) and today i got this problem:
- The desktop looks like the image attached(Screnshoot is actually the sum of the 2 desktops),+ in the additional monitor desktop a "right click" doesn't make the contextual menu appear.
- On the left monitor (laptop embedded one) the bottom-panel position is not kept. The panel is restored on top of the bottom panel of the additional monitor every restart (see image).
- Even if I set the appearance preference to show desktop background image "Zoomed" across the desktop, it seems that it is repeated in 1280x960 boxes (= the laptop screen resolution).
I spent hours trying to fix it... i couldn't find a solution.
Any idea, or best ways to configure the scenario?
Any help would be very appreciated.
