View Full Version : [ubuntu] Attempting to setup dual monitors in 10.04

February 24th, 2011, 07:28 PM
I have a lenovo connected to a docking station, which has 1 VGA monitor input on the back. The VGA port on the laptop is located on the side, so between the docking station and the laptop, 2 ports are available.

Is it possible to make use of both ports? Ubuntu only recognizes a monitor that's connected into the docking station, but since it's a laptop, I've love dual monitors excluding the laptop monitor itself.

If not, any recommendations on how I can achieve this setup?

The graphics on Lenovo and others will support only two screens the laptop and one external, the VGA conector on the docking is active when the Laptop is docked, the VGA on the side of Laptop is only activated when the Laptop is undocked.
