Ok, just installed Ubuntu 12.10 on an ASUS Zenbook UX32A (integrated graphics).
On boot, screen goes black, and doesn't come back on. However, the computer boots successfully and I hear the login sound.
I can then log in successfully. If I now connect an external monitor the HDMI port, that monitor comes on and displays the desktop as though in dual-screen mode. If I go into the display settings, turn the internal monitor off, apply, then turn it back on, it starts working with proper dual-screening. If I pull out the HDMI cable, it still reverts back to single screen mode, with the internal monitor still on. I can suspend and resume, and it still works. However if I reboot, it stops working again.
How can I make the configuration persist between boots?
