Dear List ,

I am trying to make ma laptop working a video projector (or CRT monitor 
) on my laptop (asus z71v) under 6.06.
it has a Nvidia video card and I am using nvidia driver (thought automatix).
I am totally confuse and it a mess now , I use any kind of options under 
kubuntu , any xorg.conf config I could ... reboot my laptop thousands 
times. I had limited success and never reproducible !!!
it way a too long boring story to be post here.

Anyway I would like to know how you guys handle this situation , maybe 
someone can give me his xorg.conf that deal with the laptop LCD and 
external CRT monitor ?
Should I use Kubuntu -> System panel -> display to setup xorg.conf , 
even if the nvidia driver is proprietary ?
Sould I have two xorg.conf , one for my laptop alone and one for LCD/CRT 
of the laptop.

Well any tips would be nice !!!

I need to fix that by Tuesday , otherwise I'll have to install 
window$/office again and believe me , I hate this idea !!! ;-)))

Thanks for any help
