I am trying to span the display across 2 external 17" monitors connected via VGA y-splitter to my laptop. Currently it will only output the same thing to all 3 monitors (laptop-lcd, external-lcd#1, external-lcd#2).
Is there a way to treat both external LCDs as a single LCD and change the resolution on it to span across both LCDs?
Do I need an external 2nd video card to make this work?
I am using the standard free nouveau driver included in the install, not the propritary Nvidia driver. The video card is a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M.
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS-1 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 304mm x 190mm
1440x900 60.1 + 49.9
VGA-1 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
800x600 60.3 56.2
DVI-D-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
I have gone through posts for similar issues but was unable to find information for this specific issue.
Thank you in advance for your help!
