x11 and multiple monitors

02 Jan 2007

Setting up more than one monitor can be tricky with ubuntu. I did this a while back once but I had to recently redo it.

Here’s my xorg.conf file http://docs.google.com/View?docid=ddw269zq_4kx25c

Here’s some tips

  1. use the proprietary drivers - you can get these from the ubuntu repositories
  2. use xinerama
  3. use xorg-edit http://www.cyskat.de/dee/progxorg.htm
  4. take a look at my xorg.conf file
