With 11.04, today was my first time to use an external projector and I couldn't make it work. I attached it using a VGA cable and honestly, the farthest I could go was: Nvidia x server settings > x server display configuration > detect display > TwinView - and then I couldn't follow anymore what it was asking me to save.

Is there a simpler way of using an external monitor?

(I have the Nvidia driver version 270.41.19 installed)

What was the problem you were having, saving the configuration file is pretty straight forward.
