James wants to connect his laptop to a projector without messing with his xorg.conf
Jane has two displays and would like to work on her screens as if they were a unified desktop

What URandR does NOT do:

It doesn't set up more than 2 screens a time (e.g. 2 DVI monitors) [THIS WILL BE FIXED]

Known Problems:

If you allow URandR to set up a virtual resolution, you will have to enable your external monitor (with the enable checkbox) and click on the Apply button. Only then you will be able to set your external monitor to the left (or to the right, etc.) of your main screen
Sometimes setting the virtual resolution disables direct rendering (which you can restore by removing the virtual resolution from your xorg.conf or with URandR's Clear button. [Make sure you disable Compiz before you use a a method other than Clone mode]
