I'm in the same boat. Beautiful Apple LED 24" monitor, beautiful Macbook Pro (with a great NVIDIA card), with a beautiful Kubuntu 9.10 build. Everything looks great on the Macbook Pro built in screen, but with the 190.42 release I can only get the external monitor to do 640x480. I am definitely hoping the refresh or the 195 will be able to support the monitor over the display port.

The major version numbers try to roughly match the corresponding Windows versions, though the version numbers on Windows are all wonky for reasons that I won't get into.
