There is a bug in Xfce that always sets the left most monitor or the upper monitor to the primary monitor, if you reconfigure the monitors with xrandr. So you have to either move the panels and etc by hand, or move the monitor to the right.
A small program that waits for the X server to notify it about changed monitor configuration, and then executes a given command (e.g. the autorandr mentioned in another answer) is available at: https://bitbucket.org/portix/srandrd/overview This seems to be a cleaner solution that using udev (where you have to worry about finding the right X server etc.)
I guess people looking at this question are not those that want to use GNOME, and those that use GNOME wouldn’t have to look at this question, but in the interest of completeness: GNOME has this functionality built-in. If you change the setup via gnome-control-center, gnome-settings-daemon remembers it (in .config/monitors.xml) and automatically applies it ...

i had this BadMatch Error problem until i deleted a previously added "1280x1024_60.00" because it could never use the double quoted mode successfully. Eventually, realized a better name for the mode helped. So i deleted "1280x1024_60.00" by running the following as a normal user: $ xrandr --version reports 1.4.0 and 1.4 $ xrandr | grep 1280 #Do you see ...
Yes. You need to set conky to display at the far left/right. The details will depend on whether the laptop screen is on the right or the left hand side. For example, in my setup, I have my laptop on the left and a VGA screen on the right (note the +1600 in the VGA's entry): $ xrandr | grep -w connected VGA-0 connected primary 1440x900+1600+0 (normal left ...
