Display hardware: Radeon R350 (Radeon 9800 Pro) with a DVI and VGA monitor attached.
On system bootup, both screens are identical. Going into System Settings > General > Display > Size & Orientation, I extend the desktop over the two screens, by changing the position of the DVI screen from “Clone of” VGA-0 to “Left of” VGA-0. I apply the change, and everything works fine.
But when I reboot the system, the display settings revert to the DVI being a clone of the VGA, and I have to go through the above procedure again to extend the desktop.
So, two questions:
How do I make the desktop extension sticky?
When I click on “Multiple Monitors”, it says “This module is only for configuring systems with a single desktop spread across multiple monitors. You do not appear to have this configuration.” But I have set up exactly this configuration, so why doesn’t this option work?
