Recommended Posts

Guest ZippyDaMCT

Hello All

 

:wall:

 

 

I'm using Mandriva 2007 Powerpack Plus -- how can I extend my desktop from my laptop to an external Sony Generic Flat Panel, so on the laptop I can be running a terminal session and on the other monitor be runnng firefox for example and move my mouse between the two desktops, like I did when I chose to extend my desktop on Windows XP Professional SP2......

 

Below is my xorg.conf currently --

I know it's been awhile since this thread was initiated. However, I'd like still try to help.

 

Zippy, you're using the ati driver. Can you try using the proprietary drivers from ATI? What happens then?

 

I only see information for one output monitor.
