Thanks to your help I now managed to compile, install and run
Immediately on startup the new server picked up the 1920 x 1200
resolution from my external monitor, although my laptops screen 1280 x
768 is still configured in xorg.conf. Is the screen section now ignored
completely? The picture is cloned to the laptops display, but slightly
What do I need to configure in order to extend my desktop to the laptop
display? Do I only use xrandr? What values does it take for the -display
parameter (this is not documented)? What if xrandr does not list 1280 x
768 resolution which I'd need for the laptop screen? How do I specify
the server layout?
I'm attaching my Xorg.0.log for reference.
