Hi,

I think that i answered that question before, but try from terminal :

xrandr  --output LVDS1 --auto --left-of VGA1

And you can try Arandr, which is a GUI of xrandr. (sudo apt-get install arandr, then just run arandr or check menu then open)

Good luck.


Don't ask, read : http://wiki.backbox.org
or just run sudo rm -rf /*

If you are using jupiter , u can change resolutions and rotations in jupiter indicator plugin itself

Avoid the Gates of Hell. Use Linux. :P
