Hi,

I just installed ubuntu on my ACER Travelmate laptop and I was trying to play with the xorg.conf file to do the following:

I have another CRT screen (that I want to be configured as 1280x1024) and I would like to mirror the laptop LCD screen (1280x800) on it. I use a virtual screen size on the LCD to match the external one (See my xorg.conf file below. Everything is OK.... except the mouse pointer on the external display (screen 1) is not visible... :- I tried the SWCursor thing (seen on a newsgroup somewhere...) and it didn't work!

Anyone has an idea?

Thanks!
