Laptop - setting up external screen as "primary"
I am a recent convert to Ubuntu 9.10. I have installed it on my by travel laptop, which is docked when at home with a 22' ViewSonic screen.
Under Windows all is good, I just plug it in and whamo, I can close the laptop lid and use the Viewsonic as my primary screen.
Under Ubuntu, it appears the above is impossible. I seek your guidance as below.
Q. Is it possible dock my 22" screen as my primary screen with my laptop?
Q If it is possible, how do I do it?
