unable to use my laptop in a docking station and an external monitor
Hi all, i have a question.
i currently use a fujitsu siemens (lifebook s series)
with a docking station. i also have a fujitsu siemens
SCENICVIEW B19-2 CI external lcd monitor.
Im using suse 10.2
Now then. My problem is that i am unable to use both at
the same time (xinerama or twinview)
Ive tried different settings in the xorg file and no
matter what i do i can only use the one or the other.
Under no sircumstances will both be enabled.
I have a slight suspicion that the problem isnt really in
the xorg file itself, but rather how the laptop handles
video outputs. When i press fn-F10 it changes where the signal
goes and i cant seem to be able to get both the laptop screen
and the external screen to get signals at the same time. Whenever
i use the laptop, the external monitor looses the signal (or so it says) and whenever i use the external monitor the laptop goes black.
anyone have know if its possible to use the external montor
and laptop screen at the same time when the laptop is in the docking station?
Is this a fujitsu siemens problem?
any and all help appriciated.
