Title: Dual monitors w/ laptop & hardware dock?
Post by: WallyA on March 09, 2015, 07:38:21 pm
Wondering if anyone has found a good solution for managing dual monitors with a docked laptop (hardware dock)?  What needs to be installed / configured to handle dual monitors and docking/undocking a laptop in the way that Ubuntu and Mint do?

Dual monitors w/ a desktop pc setup  is pretty straightforward - setup monitors using arandr and set it to launch at startup.  Set the panels to 50% if you prefer them on only one monitor.  With a laptop however, this becomes problematic when working off the dock as the panels only cover 50% of the screen.
