DELL D620 external monitor Mint 13

I have Mint 13 Maya on my D620 and it runs well. I would like to hook it up to an external monitor occasionally instead of using the laptop screen. How do I switch the output to use the VGA port and not the laptop screen ? thanks

Re: Update broke display background

thanks for your response, sadly neither of your suggestions did anything !!! I have since reinstalled Mint 13 XFCE on the same machine but not dared to load any updates other than the first one which updated MintUpdater. It would be nice to know if it was a specific update that broke it so I may ign...

Re: System freezing - Mint 13 Cinnamon

quick update: I spent the weekend just using my computer rather than trying to make it crash or doing any admin on it. I still have some freezes, random ones when using Firefox or gvim. Another issue is that gvim sometimes doesn't render the text properly, resizing the window causes a redraw and usu...

That comment and another a few places below it, indicates that users are still under the impression that this bug excludes Mate. For the many'th ti...

Re: System freezing - Mint 13 Cinnamon

Do you mean in terms of the new Cinnamon version or my complete computer build (including Cinnamon) ? For the former I followed the tutorial that Clem linked to upthread and incorporated the amendments another user highlighted. I can give an overview of my build but don't think it's relevant to the...

Bluetooth doesn't work properly for me. I can't receive files when send from my Nokia phone. (I had similar problems in MATE, I switched to Blueman instead of gnome-bluetooth and it work there). Is it possible to disable gnome-bluetooth on Cinnamon and use Blueman instead ?
