comment How can I detect when a monitor is plugged in or unplugged?
@Gilles I added an answer to that question. The support varies, apologies if "can be done with udev" in my earlier comment gives somebody false hope. janoliver, if you are comfortable upgrading your kernel, it might be worth an experiment (or look for a live CD). You may want to update the question with exact hardware and kernel versions for others' reference.

It can be done with udev. What is your kernel version? Are you using KMS (kernel mode setting)?
