Using the xrandr command. For example, a command
    xrandr --output VGA --mode 1024x768 --pos 0x800
will add the external monitor below my laptop panel.

But you may have to configure a separate Monitor section for the external
monitor to be able to use modes other than those from the LVDS, which is done
by a line in the Device section:
    Option "Monitor-VGA" "name of the monitor"
