Whenever I plug in an LCD LG monitor via VGA to my notebook while running X it never gets detected.
As a matter of a fact there are only two scenarios that occur:
X server is started with monitor already plugged in: xrandr shows one display with resolution equal to the sum of both displays (something like 3000x1080), however, I can use the monitor at will,
X server is started without monitor plugged in: xrandr shows only my notebook display (1280x900) and the appropriate resolution.
Even though I can use the monitor at this very moment, it requires X restart in order to start with new resolution. What is more in both cases the monitor is never shown as a another display/screen in xrandr, it only makes the only display entry resolution in xrandr bigger. That might not be that serious, but whenever I want to use the monitor after I have started X - it doesn't even get detected.
From what I can gather that is a problem of NVIDIA drivers and me using NVIDIA's TwinView, as you can see in the attached xorg.conf.
Do you think the problem could be resolved while using NVIDIA drivers or is it a complication due to the usage of TwinView?
