View Full Version : [lubuntu] Dual Monitor Display/Menu Behavior

December 18th, 2012, 08:11 PM
Running fresh install of lubuntu, all updates , third party drivers

problem: bring up app, like abiword, on external monitor, click File, menu drop down appears on laptop monitor; works fine if on laptop display and when mirrored, just not extended. graphics details are below

both displays active, keyboard works fine in apps, just the menu displays; bizarre by my experience

any help would be appreciated, I am new to lubuntu but not windows env, but don't even know where to start - thanks

just went through making sure i have right driver, manipulated displays with xrandr, all appears fine with core graphics driver *-display
