I've had great success connecting my external monitor to my netbook so that I can use a full-size display, but the setup is currently somewhat inconvenient in its current form. I often have to switch back to the built-in display to take the computer elsewhere, and to do that requires going into the gnome monitor panel and reconfiguring everything. What I'd like would be a series of commands I could use to switch the configuration from one monitor to the other. Even better would be a script which would automatically switch to the big display when it's connected, and vice-versa. Any suggestions?
Just to be clear, I'm not using a multiple-monitor setup here... I only use one at a time.
