quick note for my dual displays - xrandr command worth booking

so I have a laptop and another monitor, whose position was to the left, and then I positioned it to my laptop's right.

The problem was the mouse translation from laptop to the monitor, annoyance !

So I changed settings, and I got an error when trying to apply the new position.

Solution is given here:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/174195/gdbus-error-when-trying-to-enable-second-screen

Which led me to issue locally:

> xrandr --current

and then the proper command for my case:

> xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --left-of HDMI1

and bingo, things are back to normal.
