I am running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I am running it on a Compaq Presario CQ42-291tx. I have an additional monitor from my previous desktop PC. Problem arise when i have to work and my friends wants to watch movies. I know that I can connect my monitor with my laptop. I saw it in windows, and it works here fine.
Is it possible to assign a player to play movie file on an external desktop monitor while I am working with another application on my laptop monitor?
