I am using Ubuntu 12.04 on dell E6420 with Nvidia NVS4200M.

I can configure any external display properly using NVIDIA X Server Settings, but monitors are not recognized automatically nor recognized as absent automatically - every change i make must be manually defined and applied. This can be annoying as i move around a lot and use many different displays/projectors.

I have found discussions of a similar problem here

and here

any help would be appreciated.

as mentioned here, installing disper from software-center provides a good work around. –  eli Aug 11 '12 at 21:32
    
On 12.10 functionality is overall better - driver was updated. in addition, I found the gnome extension "Disper displays" very handy. –  eli Dec 5 '12 at 20:29
