Hi all.

Running 12.04 on my 2,1 macbook.

When using a 2nd display via displayport adapter in 2D desktop mode, I get random display 'switch'. Where the display for the laptop presents on the monitor, and the monitor presents on the laptop (at uneven resolutions). This happens at random about every 30 mins in ubuntu.

No external monitor and I am fine.

Clicking onto the 'displays' tab from the power/settings context menu (top right of desktop) resets the displays to normal.

Hints or tips or tricks I should be looking for?

In XP-SP3 and OSX I can run this setup dependably with no issue.
