This question concerns a P3-500 320MB Thinkpad running Vector Light version 6 beta 2 with a NeoMagic video card. Gslapt reports that the correct driver for the card is installed.
Here is the question:
Currently, if I want to use my second display (a projector), I need to boot the laptop with the projector already attached. In that case, the laptop's function keys toggle over to the second display (and back) just fine. But if I attach the second display after bootup, Vector does not see the second display, and I must reboot.
Does anyone know how to enable the hot-plugging of second displays? For example, are there some lines I can add to a configuration file somewhere, or perhaps this feature is only supported in some window managers and desktop environments but not others (such as IceWM, which is the default desktop in Light)?
