Subject description: Help required to setup
 

Hi All,

Puppy is just the best!

I am configuring Puppy 2.14 to show an extended desktop over two monitors.

Is it as simple as editing the Xorg file to show another monitor?

If so I need some knowledge.

I have two monitors- monitor 1 Sony SDM X72 and monitor 2 Samsung 940MW.

The SDM X72 is connected to the DVI port of a radeon 9250 and the Samsung to HD15.

I use the SDM X72 as my main screen and the 940MW to the left.

In the xorg config file I see that the 940MW has been recognized but the SDM X72 is not.

Is it as simple as changing the config file to show that the SDM X72 is monitor 0 and creating new parameters for it?

Also would I need to change the 940 MW to monitor 1 and insert left of screen?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am a newbie.

I just updated the dotpup to use our new server, as our old domain dotpups.de still is not reachable Sad

With that you can install the fglrx drivers from ATI.
Maybe with their fglrxpanel you can set up a second monitor.

But I often have read, that the dual-monitor support of their Linuxdrivers does not support many cards.

So first, you might try what is described here:
