Laptop and External Monitor (Dual Monitors)
I am constantly wishing to move from Windows to Ubuntu (Linux) for a while now. But I always end up coming back to Windows. This is a shame as I do wish to make the change permanent.
This is my problem:
I have a Dell XPS i7 laptop and have an LG Flatron W2253TQ monitor connected via HDMI. I cannot get dual displays working on my laptop screen and external monitor.
I have played with the settings and the Nvidia settings and best I have got is both screens looking glitchy with graphics and unreadable.
The older version of Ubuntu worked better, but could not run software in full screen. Also once disconnected, I had to change settings again.
Any advise would be appreciated. Is there any plan to make this process easier?
My work demands that I use multiple screens.
Can you help with this problem?
