http://askubuntu.com – I am currently using two monitors with one in landscape mode and the other in portrait mode. Video card is Nvidia Geforce 9600 GT with nvidia's propriety driver. I was able to force the issue in 11.10 by assigning a separate X screen for each monitor and rotating the screen assigned to the portrait monitor. ( :0 for the landscape and :1 for the portrait) I heard that 12.04 improved greatly on multi-monitor configurations. But it doesn't work for me: I had to resort to TwinView mode in order to take advantage of seamless multi-monitor experience but TwinView mode doesn't work with my situatio (HowTos)
