    Cannot mirror dual screens in Ubuntu 12.04

    I've got a laptop with an external screen which works fine when the screens are laid out in side-by-side mode. What do I need to set up to get mirroring? Currently that option is greyed out in System Settings -> Displays

    It doesn't look like attachments are working. Here is the output from lshw, if that helps. The machine does have to stay with 12.04.x Moving to 13.10 is not an option. It's got an NVIDIA G98M [Quadro NVS 160M]
