Ubuntu does not recognize a new monitor when it is replaced on the fly. That is, when the computer is running, and you yank out the cable of the old monitor and put in the new one.

I had the exact same problem with one of my monitors as well. The best suggestion I can give you would be to put those commands into a script file. I named mine fixres.bsh and put it in my home ~ directory.

If you don't explicitly list ...
