Hi,

I think there is no solution :-(
I was searching the internet long enough and no clue. Clone mode work almost "out of the box", but extended mode is probably impossible to setup.

I have laptop Acer 5024 with Ati X700 and proprietary Ati drivers 8.22.5 running Ubuntu 5.10.

If anyone knows anything, please let us know.

Thanks

Tets :-)

Too bad for me...I have an ATI card :-(
But thanks for a reply, anyway. I'm happy, that at least you setup it successfully.
I'll keep searching&trying.

Tets :-)

It's working! And it was incredibly easy to set it up:

As I wrote before, "I have laptop Acer 5024 with Ati X700 and proprietary Ati drivers 8.22.5 running Ubuntu 5.10."

There are these few steps:
1. Backup xorg.conf
2. run "aticonfig --initial=dual-head --screen-layout=right" (I have the second monitor on the right side)
It was running fine, but on the sec. monitor was completly new desktop!
3. Then "aticonfig --dtop=horizontal --overlay-on=1" fix it!

It's all in "aticonfig -h" :-(

Tets :-)
