Hi, I have a new installation of the newest Ubuntu, 11.04 I think it is.I like it. I need to use this laptop in class, connected to an overhead projector. Yesterday, I tried for the first time, it booted into both screens, then promptly froze when I opened my home folder. As windows works, and the laptop is new, I am ruling out hardware failure.
This is a Toshiba Satellite 600 with an ATI Radeon 9803 chipset. I do not have the proprietry driver activated, as I read flgrx is not compatible with gnome 3.
I'm sure Ubuntu has a way of dealing with multiple screens. Any tips out there?
NB: at home Ubuntu works fine, no freezing, so I am guessing this has to do with running two screens.
