I installed Mint 14.1 64bit with cinnamon and I'm trying to setup my monitor as a second display. Currently it will only mirror the display. Searching the web, I found similar issues resolved by installing some nvidia-current and an nvidia setting app. After installing these, my menu bar was changed and it didn't fix the monitor problem. Not sure what graphics card this laptop has, it probably isn't nvidia (I think it is Intel), but in the Details it shows no info for graphics card.
So can someone help me...
1) Determine what graphics cards I have & drivers to install, and
2) Configure the monitor for dual display (probably can take care of this myself if graphic driver issue is solved).
