View Full Version : [ubuntu] Using an External Monitor on a laptop

October 2nd, 2008, 06:02 PM

I'm using an external monitor with a lenovo x200 laptop. If I go to System > Preferences > Screen Resolution a dialog comes up allowing me to change the resolution settings. There is one box with the laptop screen and the other with the external monitor screen. I can move these around and set it up as I would like to (side by side), but as soon as I hit apply they're back on top of each other. Is this just a limitation of the graphics card in the laptop?
