Re: Fedora12 docking station
What about going into Systems > Preference > Monitors?
In there, there is a button to Detect Monitors. If it detects it you may be able to then choose Clone or Spread screen.
If it is something you do often enough, you may even want to add the icon to the panel so you can click or right-click on that to get into this menu.
I don't know if the Dell handles the docking station better than Lenovo, but I know that things like pulling the plug on my docking station while the computer is on locks up and freezes the system, while without the power (to the docking station) the second monitor, USB keyboard and USB mouse don't work.
Linux provides freedom, the problem is most users don't know what it is or how to use it.

p.s. Anybody who sees I am incorrect in technical procedures, etc., please feel free to correct me. I'm just figuring this out as I go along. :D
