  [Lenovo T530, W530]: External display does not work through Display
  port or VGA

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “linux” source package in Precise:

Bug description:
  Connecting a display through the display port does nothing. I can try to press the key combo fn + f7 or trigger the monitor to refresh and the display is still blank on the external monitor.

  udev does not seem to notice the display port connection either.

  Expected result: External display should be mirrored when inserting a
  display port or VGA connection.
