Press "make default" – lid Aug 26 '11 at 12:52
OK, how about the choice of which screen to display on at startup/wake? – lid Aug 26 '11 at 12:52
I think you might have to use an XF86Config (or the new name?)... Maybe the fancy registry-based wanna-be-WinNT gnome configurator has a way? – lid Aug 26 '11 at 12:53
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because Squeeze is out of of long term support – Jeff Schaller Jun 9 at 0:06
@JeffSchaller - please read this meta answer on closing questions that refer to EOL distros. The answer is about Ubuntu, but the principle remains for all distros. – garethTheRed Jun 9 at 6:45
