Ubuntu: How to configure two monitors on Ubuntu 16.04?


I'm a front-end developer and I work with a laptop running Ubuntu 16.04. Recently, I bought a Full HD monitor in order to better test my applications.

But the main thing I want to do, I hadn't achieved yet, that is write code in my laptop and visualize the result at the same time in my monitor.

In other words... I would have Sublime Text/Terminal opened in the laptop and the browser opened in the monitor.

How can I achieve it? Any help is welcome.


You should be able to do this quite simply from in the settings

This guide covers it quite well:


As an overview you would go to System Settings, then Screen Display where you can turn the monitor on and off. Make sure to not have ticked "Mirror Display"

Hope that helps
