http://www.humans-enabled.com – Setting to Automatically "Extend" Your Screen onto External Monitor in Ubuntu Linux w/Nvidia graphicsJust a quick write up with a fix for those who are having problems saving their "extended" monitor configurations when using their notebooks with and without the docking station.For a long time I would use the nvidia-settings utility to manually set up my external monitor after docking. This required several clicks of the mouse. Now I've found a way to make a minor edit to my /etc/X11/xorg.conf file that will keep the "extended" setting when docked and revert to the single screen without issue (HowTos)
