Default Running dual-monitor

Hi,

I just installed ubuntu 6.06 and would like to set up my monitors like my previous winxp configuration, i.e. dual-monitor with my LCD on left and TV on right.

Attached are my nvidia-bug-report.log, xorg.conf, and Xorg.0.log; it seems that screen 1 never got set up.

Any pointer is appreciated, thanks in advance!

Regards,

Al

I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. I have very little time to reply here, so I figure I'll try to get you on your way to dual-screen beauty as soon as possible. Below is the URL to my "xorg.conf" file that I use with my dual-17" LCD monitors on my nVIDIA GeForce 5600.

Good luck!

Thanx alot!!! I'll try my best to understand your conf first!

But what I wanted is to have a desktop spanning from left to right, not an identical desktop appearing on two different screens.

tried that too...

does anyone have a working xorg.conf that i can take a peek? I need the desktop to span from monitor on the left to TV on the right, so I can run mplayer on the TV screen and still do some work on the monitor screen (like i used to in M$ win-xp).
