I have a dell vostro 1700 laptop and the screen is failing. I know I can clone the screen on to an external vga monitor and I am looking at buying a AOC E950SWN 18.5" monitor. However, before I buy it I want to make sure that Ubuntu 12.04 will recognise/support this monitor. Will it just plug and pray :-) or will I have to do anything first. I would like to do this asap before my laptop screen dies totally.

Does any know the answer?

Thanks Chris.
