I have bought a second monitor Samsung 24 inch AH-IPS Led HDMI Monitor LS24E360HL/XL Glossy White from amazon india for home. I already have two monitors at work and I am sure of the fact that dual displays improves the productivity. This monitor color is glossy white and its really more than a monitor with stunning looks. Its carefully designed to keep the focus on your content viewing pleasure.

Setting up second monitor on Xenial

I have connected new monitor via hdmi and old monitor (24 inch) via VGA to Desktop.
There was some trouble in setting up second display (old one) initially on Ubuntu Xenial. The second display resolution was low and there was no other resolution options (e.g. 1980x1080) available.

To correct this, I have added following option in ~/.xprofile and rebooted the machine.

cvt 1920 1080
xrandr --newmode "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync
xrandr --addmode VGA1 "1920x1080_60.00"
xrandr --output VGA1 --mode "1920x1080_60.00"

Run xrandr command to view monitors list.

ami@ami-desktop:~$ xrandr --listmonitors
