View Full Version : [ubuntu] v8.10 Force Laptop to be Primary Display

November 4th, 2008, 06:48 PM
Running a basic HP laptop (Compaq nx7300) using regular drivers and regular setup. My external monitor is the primary display.

I see no way of setting the Laptop to be the primary display. In order to make it work, I have to disable the external monitor.

How can I force the laptop to be primary display?

any luck with solving this issue? the only fix I've found is to move the screen you want to be primary to the left, but my screens are set up in the opposite way so i want to move in the other direction to get to the external display:o
