** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: kdebase-workspace
  The details of this problem have been discussed in this thread:
  Since no one else has contributed any information to clear this up, I am
  choosing to report it as a bug.
  Briefly: the display settings (in System Settings) should have a
  Multiple Monitors section. Or so I am told; I have never seen it, but
  I've been shown screen shots. But the section is missing when I boot
  from distro CDs: 8.10, 9.04 and 9.04-AMD64. Personally, I've tried this
  on two different laptops with an external screen attached. Both laptops
  are AMD/ATI-based.
  I can configure multiple monitors on the same machines in Gnome with the
  regular Ubuntu CD.
