Dual monitor support in Slacko 5.4
I have an external monitor hooked up to my laptop. After booting from the new Slacko 5.4 release, I notice that my screens are cloned instead of me having the ability to drag from one screen to another.
How do I set this up?
I downloaded Zarfy 0.1.0 but have no idea how to use it.I tried a few things and ended up messing up my screens. I know that there are things that I am not understanding and really appreciate the help.
I also need the settings to survive a restart. Is there maybe any easier way than using Zarfy? Hopefully a GUI solution?

You need to get the proper drivers for the graphics card in your laptop. Multiple screen support will come with that as an option in the driver set up.
I have a 1600x1200 Dell laptop and a 1920x1200 TV/Monitor and I have four profiles
1) Just the Laptop
2) Both with the TV as a clone
3) Both with the TV as an extension of the laptop giving a 3520x1200 resolution
4) Both with the TV as a second screen. Good for films! _________________ I can't remember the last time I forgot something!
