  • Disabling internal laptop LCD, enabling external monitor.

    Hello,

    My laptop's internal Monitor isn't working so well (hardware failure) but it still lights up and gets filled with artifacts.
    I would like to know what xorg.conf option I should add in order to disable it completely, and only enable the external monitor.

    Hardware : ATI Radeon 9100
    Driver : the open source radeon driver that comes with Xubuntu Hardy (6.8.0)

    Thank you in advance.

      Thanks, nice article.
      Also found out that I can add
      Code:
      xrandr --output LVDS --off
      as a startup command
