When "Manage and configure monitors and displays" control panel module doesn't work

... this might come in handy for configuring a multiple display setup:

xrandr --auto --output VGA1 --mode 1600x900 --left-of LVDS

It should be pretty straightforward, what this command does. VGA1 is in my case identifier of the monitor connected to the VGA port, and LVDS is the main laptop screen.
