First, let me say that I got turned on to pclos by a friend and it's awesome. I've been a distro hopper for years but always .deb based so I thought I'd try it.
Everything works awesome except for one thing. I can't get my external monitor to work. I have the monitor hooked into the USB Lenovo 2.0 port replicator with a VGA cable and I have the port replicator hooked into my Lenovo Thinkpad SL510 laptop.
Here's the frustrating thing: in the control center, it recognizes not just the dock but even the brand name. I've set the video card configuration to dual monitor and it 'accepts' that. I can even access my Big Bertha (1Tb usb sata external drive) through the dock. But the monitor is a no-go.
Tis my first time with rpm and pclos so maybe I'm missing something incredibly simple (I hope so). Any suggestions?
This isn't a deal-breaker and I won't be rage-quitting. I really really like the way synaptic is set up in pclos vs, say, Ubuntu, and I absolutely adore the default 6-desktop array (and the icons are cute!).
I am just used to running dual screens simultaneously and I'd like to do that if possible.
