    Post Intel HD Graphics Dual Monitor Not Detected


    I'm trying to connect external monitor to a laptop running Kali via VGA (or HDMI as well) and the system simply doesn't recognize that anything was connected.
    The laptop is Aspire E1-532 with Intel HD Graphics.

    output of "uname -a":
    Linux localhost 3.7-trunk-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.7.2-0+kali8 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    output of "aptitude show xserver-xorg-video-intel"

       1366x768        0.0* 
       1368x768        0.0
    1366 x 768 is resolution of the laptop screen. It is weird, that it is there twice. I also see this resolution for laptop screen twice in select box in System Settings -> Display.

    I don't use any /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

    When I try the boot Ubuntu Live CD on the same laptop the connection with external monitor works fine.

    Does anybody have some clue where might be a problem?

    I am very thankful for any kind of help

    guys, i dont think this is a Kali issue, but a X-server one

    1st of all the files instead the 'old' /etc/X11/xorg.conf , is under the directory /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d

    The idea is :
    You must create a device/monitor/screen sections, for every MonitorDisplay you want to have ( 2 in this example )
    Then you add a "ServerLayout" section where you add the 2 screens you create in the step above ...

    I try,theese days, this with the onboard i9xx and an old GeForce2 32MB card ,
    i have do this to work, but not quiet in the way i want (only with the Xinerama option, things go well, but this means that my conf files, is not quiet OK for the X-server ... ),
    so i'm not gonna help u more, because i'm not quiet sure for the rest ...
