View Full Version : [ubuntu] dual monitors with ati card WITHOUT using fglrx??

Hi Folks,

I've been using Ubuntu on my laptop for about a year and a half now, and I've now made the switch on my desktop.

I have an ATI 3870, and I want to use dual monitors.

I've installed and configured ati's flgrx, and got both monitors working fine, but the 2d performane SUCKED... moving windows around the desktop gave me a nice little slideshow

So I switched back to the default open source ATI drivers, which run much better, but I can't figure out how to get 2 monitors working.

Is there a way to do this?

Let me know
