I have an issue - External CRT monitor connected to Samsung R528 Ubuntu 12.04LTS PC. Got it working with my Nvidia card, but in a wrong way. Now both screens are cloned, they dont share the same image but workspace. For example - when I'm in monitor1 and press CTRL+ALT+left it moves left one workspace on both screens.

How to shut this thing off and make seperate workspace controls for each screen?
