Ok. Getting frustrated because i've tried everything. Keep in mind, I've been using linux for quite some time as my desktop and this is my first attempt and such a task.
I have an IBM Thinkpad T30 laptop with a Radeon 7500 mobility. Here's what I want to do:
Span my desktop across both the laptop's LCD and the external monitor I have plugged into the back of the laptop. Windows XP is capable of such a task. Not sure if it's doable in linux. Currently, if the external monitor is attached. I get mirrors desktops.. in other words both screens show the same thing.. but i want to extend my desktop onto the other monitor.
Doable? If not, is it possible to have each monitor show a different desktop?
