HI

I've been using ubuntu on my toshiba laptop for about 2 years and its been excellent. I got a monitor and now i have this problem which is formcing me to use windows.

i want to get the extended desktop to work as in windows. my laptop display is a 16:9 and external monitor is 4:3. hence i cannot use big desktop as the resolutions dont add up or i cant get a complete display.

has any one got this to work? any help will be appreciated. i have an ati x300 card and have installed the ati drivers.

thanks in advance

cheers

tagging along as I am going to be doing both a 22" monitor and 40 flat screen.

Same problems will probably apply no?
