Which version of xrandr do you have installed? Those don't seem to even
options in the FC7 one I have:

continuity> xrandr --help
usage: xrandr [options]
  where options are:
  -display <display> or -d <display>
  -o <normal,inverted,left,right,0,1,2,3>
            or --orientation <normal,inverted,left,right,0,1,2,3>
  -q        or --query
  -s <size>/<width>x<height> or --size <size>/<width>x<height>
  -r <rate> or --rate <rate>
  -v        or --version
  -x        (reflect in x)
  -y        (reflect in y)
  --screen <screen>

I've got a laptop with I945 video and I tried several variations and it
doesn't seem like my laptop even see the other monitor when I connect
it. The  most telling is this error:

continuity>  xrandr --verbose --screen 1 --size 1920x1200 --orientation right
Invalid screen number 1 (display has 1)
