View Full Version : [ubuntu] External display messed up.

August 27th, 2009, 03:30 AM
Dear Friends,

I have bought a Dell SP2309W LCD monitor for my Dell Inspiron 6400/1505E. When i connect it to my laptop resolution is obviously low which i can change easily using nvidia-settings.

Is their some way that i do not have to change settings every time i connect it to my laptop?

When i remove the VGA cable the resolution of my laptop is distorted and changing setting does not get it correct. What can i do to make this transition easy and clean?

Whenever i connect and disconnect my monitor my screenlets and notification area get messed up. Screenlets get scattered all over the screen. And notification area icons also move randomly. How can i solve this problem?

I am a newbie. Please help.
