When I boot Linux Mint 14 up on my docked laptop - the login screen displays on the closed laptop screen, not the monitor. So in order to login, I have to open the laptop, click the username box, close the laptop, type my username, tab, password, return to login.
Once past the login screen, it correctly displays content only on the external monitor.
Does anyone know how I can make sure that Mint correctly ignores the laptop screen when the laptop is closed during login? The system shows the bios and bootloader info on the monitor correctly, it's just when it comes to login that I have a problem.
