I can get dual monitors working with Ubuntu, Fedora, LinuxMint etc...

But the system I really want to use (as I feel it is the best) is xubuntu, but I cannot get my second monitor working.

Anyone got any ideas on how I maybe able to do so, or any guides on setting up multiple monitors on xubuntu.

Thanks,
Kai

once your computer bootup hit ctrl+alt+F2 to be on a different terminal and revert the xorg back the way it was. then, try again the steps carefully. i did myself the twingview and i do have any problems with it at all.

what kind of version of ubuntu do you have? on Jaunty 9.04 they have implemented support on dual monitors. if you don't have jaunty you might think about upgrading to it.
