Dual Monitors and Fujitsu Laptop


I am running a Fujitsu T4220 with Ubuntu 7.10 with a docking station/port replicator that has a Dell 17in monitor attached to that. The video card is an onboard Intel. How do I set it so that I can use both monitors and that they are not mirrored? I am not picky on screen resolution or which one is default. All I need is so that when it is not docked it uses the laptop LCD and when it is docked I have them both. Any and all help would be very helpful.

I did go through the how to on the ubuntu forums http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=1773624


Thanks,

I don't use Ubuntu, and don't now X version in 7.10, but just try xrandr -v. If you have 1.2, needn't set up dual monitor/devices in xorg.conf, only read man xrandr

I am sorry but even after reading the MAN page I am still confused. It makes it sound like I should have 2 video out ports but I only have 1. My video card is a Mobile Intel 965 Express.

I will try a couple things and hope for the best but if there are any recommendations please let me know.

You should have 2 outputs in order to connect 2 devices, one is LVDS (internal laptop panel), second is VGA or DVI in port replicator (I think, there is no extra graphicss card). Type xrandr, and paste here the results. I guess you are using xorg intel driver.
