Release: IGEL Universal Desktop OS V2 Version 5.01.100 (Update)

IGEL Universal Desktop OS V2
Version 5.01.100
Oct 01 2013

Dual monitor configuration for “unsupported hardware” works only if “native
driver support” works properly. It is a prerequisite to assure that the
native driver is really working, as the fallback VESA driver does not provide
any dual monitor configuration. Have a look at Application Launcher’s
About tab->Hardware-Graphics Chipset. If VESA is listed there the native
driver does not work and dual monitor configuration is not functional.
