Ubuntu Tip #1: Dual Head on ATI Radeon

After getting confused reading the dual monitor post at Ubuntu Forums, I had almost given up enabling it on my dekstop. Then I saw this most simple set of instructions at Gouki’s web site and it worked just great.

The instructions are very simple

  1. sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup
  2. sudo aticonfig --initial
  3. sudo aticonfig --initial=dual-head --screen-layout=left
  4. (Restart X by Ctrl-Alt-Backspace)
  5. sudo aticonfig --dtop=horizontal
  6. (Restart X by Ctrl-Alt-Backspace)
