Hi guys, I have my F17 in my laptop. So I decide to use it sometimes in my LG TV 22"

The thing is that I can't manage the resolution in the Wide TV Screen, I can't see nothing, only my wallpaper, but in my laptop works fine. I tried the screen configuration with no results. Is there an app that can help me with external screens?

You might want to check it directly with xrandr. Use it at your terminal to see the screens and available resolutions you have. LSDVx is usually your laptop screen, so the other one show as second might be your tv.

To activate it use something similar to

xrandr --output YOUR_TV --auto --left-of YOUR_LAPTOP --size widthxheight
