F9: still problem with dual head T42
Yes, xrandr appears to see my monitor. I get something like:
VGA-0 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
340mm x 250mm
1600x1200 70.0 65.0 60.0
The monitor appears mirrored after reboot. However, when I enter the
'xrandr -right-of' my gnome session hangs completely. The mouse still
moves but none of the windows or controls respond.
I'm using the standard drivers here. Perhaps I need different drivers?
