Set up Dual Monitors in Ubuntu with Nvidia GeForce FX 5200

First I installed


tim@Lincoln:~$ sudo apt-get install envyng-qt

with all its crazy dependencies. Then I ran lspci | grep VGA to find my video driver.


00:0a.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] (rev a1)

With envyng, I took their recommendation of: 173.14.12-0ubuntu5.1 and installed, restarted.

On restart I had access to the nvidia setting manager, which i started as sudo with:


sudo nvidia-settings &

everything works fine now.
