Dual Monitor question for LM13 xfce 64 bit

Postby animaguy on Tue Jan 08, 2013 2:35 am

I have a laptop and an extra monitor.

When I plug in the monitor to the laptop, the laptop monitor is exactly the same as the external monitor.

Is there a way to have the extra monitor extend from the laptop monitor?

Take a look here

The xrandr command is:

Code: Select all
xrandr --output HDMI2 --right-of HDMI1


To get the name of your screens just run xrandr (sudo apt-get install arandr).

I successfully installed ARandR and everything is working fine again.
