I have connected to an external monitor and would like to turn off mirroring. None of the 'Fn' buttons are working. Think it is F7 in XP that does this.
Thanks, Keith

If you're in XFCE, going to the display settings under system settings should give you the option to turn off mirroring.

you want both monitors to act as one big desktop, corect?
i use xrandr to control my monitors. for my hardware i do this

Code:
xrandr --ouptut VGA-0 auto --output LVDS auto --right-of VGA-0

that makes my extra monitor act as if it were the right side of the main monitor and both act as one big destop.
check  "xrandr --help"
