comment How can I set up dual monitors with nVidia?
Yes it is a lenovo laptop. I'm not positive how to check if I am running unity 3D. $DESKTOP_SESSION is set to ubuntu-2d so I guess I am not running 3d. The nVidia X Server Settings configuration app gives me this error: "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIIA X-driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run nvidia-xconfg as root), and restart the X server." But when I follow these instructions my boot always freezes, and I have to boot in restore mode and rm the xorg.conf file. Presumably the xorg.conf file has the wrong options set, which messes up boot.
