the video hardware driver

those laptop graphics chips treat the VGA connector like a 2nd monitor, I have no idea how you configure linux for multimonitor, but I know its not nearly as easy as MS Windows where it just works.

  • Indeed that connector is treated as an “all the time on” 2nd monitor

    If it is an nvidia card, you can use use the NVIDIA X Server Settings link in “Menu => System => Administration” (if you install the drivers from elrepo, which I recommend)

    If it is another card that uses system drivers, you can use the “Menu =>
    System => Display”

    I just create 2 xorg.conf files and copy the one I need into place when I hook up to my docking station on my Dell M4500.
