LXer: Setting up dual monitors system-wide with XRandR on Debian Lenny
Published at LXer:
I have been playing with my monitor setup again on my Dell D530 laptop. The internal monitor of the laptop is 1400x1050 pixels, but I usually use a 19" external monitor set to 1280x1024. With Etch this worked flawless but when I upgraded to Lenny this stopped working. I had to change the resolution each time I changed from external screen to internal screen and back. At the same time I also got interested in trying a dual-head setup instead of only an external monitor when one was connected. I was going to need completely different layouts depending on the external monitor. It took a while before I figured out how to do it, it took a little longer to fight GNOME into submission, but here is how to make it work.
