use a standard dual-head setup on Debian with a IBM ThinkPad R60 and ATI
Radeon Mobility X1400, where I use my 15" TFT of the laptop as the first
screen (1400x1050) and a Dell 1901FP as the second screen (1280x1024).
This is on Debian Lenny though, not Ubuntu.
No problems there.
Is your problem getting both screens to work (the xorg setup) or is it
the extended desktop, you've got trouble with ?
