View Full Version : [ubuntu] external monitor issue

September 5th, 2010, 07:56 AM

i just installed the latest version of ubuntu 10.04 (64bit) on my laptop

after installing it, i downloaded and installed the nvidia drivers from the official nvidia site and configured it to use only my external monitor

the thing is this that i would like for the system to auto-switch to an external monitor when i connect to one (through my hdmi/vga port), and revert back to my *normal* laptop screen when i disconnect it

i tried playing with options in the nvidia-settings panel but it doesn't appear to have that option (or at least i can't find it)
