But System -> Administration -> Hardware
Drivers doesn't find any proprietary drivers

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
returns without doing anything.

What is the missing piece of the puzzle?

Default Karmic Radeon Dual Head Trouble

Doesn't work any better when I back out the fglrx driver and use just
the radeon driver. "Detect Monitors" button in Display Manager
doesn't see the monitory connected to the ATI card. Nothing is wrong
with the monitor or cable. If swap the cables plugged into the svga
port is see theother monitor on the Intel graphics adapter on the
motherboard.

Ah! I'm afraid that currently dual-head with two different video cards
is not a supported configuration, currently. XRandR 1.3 was supposed to
add support for this, but last I've heard it was delayed until XRandR
1.4.

Dual-head with a single video card driving two monitors ought to work
fine, especially if you use the open-source drivers.

Ah, good thing to know that although the approach I was taking is hopeless,
there is another approach that has possibilities.

You may be able to still use the 'old' method like
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=34774&highlight=dual+head+setup

Have a search through the forums and list archives for 'dual head setup'
and look at stuff around 3-4 years a go (There’s loads!)
