I'm on ubuntu 11.10 and i'd like to change the resolution of the logon screen. I'm using two screens : the main one (which is the laptop one) is 1600*900, the second is 1440*900. The logon manager started in mirrored mode for both screens. I would like it starts only on the main screen. Is there any way to do that ?

Yes, it is possible to do this - my 11.10 set up works like this. However, it just worked like this from the start for me, so I don't have any advice on how to get it working :-/ Have you tried making sure you have the latest drivings for your video card? What kind of video card do you have? –  David Oneill Apr 3 '12 at 18:13
I'm under a laptop which use Nvidia Optimus technology. I'm generally using the SandyBridge Card, and sometimes (like for HD videos or things like that) I switch to the Nvidia one (with bumblebee). I guess it's only the Intel card. I use the "Displays" configuration inside the control panel to configure correctly my session. Is there any way to extend it to the rest of the system ? –  Bahaïka Apr 4 '12 at 14:07
