LM Mate 18 Dual Monitors

I just did a clean install of LM !8 and can't get dual monitors t work. It shows the monitor in the display settings area, but just a black screen.
This worked fine in LM 17.3. Is there a trick to get it working or it it likely because there are no amd drivers in lm18?

Naming a script

Just starting to learn about scripts so hopefully this isn't a stupid question, but I'm curious if there is any significance to some scripts using a 10_ or a 20_ in the filename? rob@rob /etc/pm/sleep.d $ ls 10_grub-common 10_unattended-upgrades-hibernate novatel_3g_suspend 10_resume_wifi 20_docky

Wireless disabled when laptop lid is closed

Hi guys

As the topic says, when I close the lid on my laptop the wifi is disabled when I open it back up.
A reboot fixes it, but.. This machine had been working fine up until yesterday.
