Dual Screen, Output VGA Monitor and Laptop Screen Problems
Hi , i am still very much a newbie in linux, although i aint completely unfimiliar with the linux OS.
Heres my problem, i have a lenovo s10e netbook running dual boot Ubuntu 8.10 and Windows Xp. The Windows Xp part aint important howevever i just mentioned it because on windows xp when i plug in my monitor in the vga output the computer does what i would like it to, and that is , it outputs the screen to my monitor and monitor alone so there is no resolution conflict.
I am trying to acheive this in ubuntu 8.10 as well, can somebody please asist me. In ubuntu 8.10 it does so during boot up, the mo0nitor is the sole output for visual. Once however it enters into ubuntu 8.10 x-server(i think its called) it changes to both screen and monitor(vga). This in turn causes the screen monitor when i increase the resolution to say 1280X1024 to be only displayed (by the kde application resize&rotate) on the output vga monitor. The problem with this is, the screen is all wrong, everything is unproportionate. Letters are huge in some programs, some applicatiosn are streched in weird angles. Can somebody please assist, also i do get an error by Xorg (EE) in boot splash, but currently i dont know where to locate that information in /var/log. Please help.
In a nutshell i would like to only display al my visual output to my vga monitor. I am sitting in /etx/X11 and waiting further instruction.
