Twinview on Linux Mint 13 xfce


Hi to all,

I installed Linux Mint yesterday for first time. At the moment I'm enjoying a lot, but I have a little problem. I don't know how to activate the Twinview mode. I have 2 screens, and in other distributions (RedHat) it was very easy with the nvidia-settings, but now I'dont know how to do it. Somebody could help me, please?

EDIT: I added this and now I can use twinview

Code:
xrandr --auto --output VGA-1 --mode 1280x1024 --left-of DVI-I-1

I think twinview might be a nVidia thing. I always use nvidia-settings.

yes, I used the nvidia-settings on RedHat because nvidia drivers were installed, but in Linux Mint I have nouveau, not privative nvidia. Somebody know if I can change both screens through graphical server on Xfce?
