Multiple X Screens with nVidia GeForce 4 Ti and Suse Linux 8.2 - big problem
 
1 Attachment(s)
:mad:

hi folks! i am a new linux user and have big problems configuring my two displays with my nvidia card and suse linux 8.2. the trouble is, whatever I do, i can't use the two screens as separate ones, the only thing I get is I can't start the KDE session anymore or if both screen run there is only a single X screen as explained in the nVidia Readme file in APPENDIX I (CONFIGURING TWINVIEW). Then I configured XF86Config as explained in APPENDIX I (CONFIGURING TWINVIEW) and APPENDIC R (CONFIGURING MULTIPLE X SCREENS ON ONE CARD). I even tried the Option ConnectedMonitor "CRT, DFP", but it didn't help. I'll attach my XF86Config file, maybe someone arround had simmilary problems or discovers something I've overseen and can help me with some suggestions what I should change in the config file.

You should comment these lines:

Option "TwinView"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-61"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "54-75"

Because, if you want to use Screens separate, you cannot configure it to use TwinView...

Thanks for the sugestion!

I did comment those lines and now it looks like this:

-on the first monitor everything is in german language
-on the second monitor all the shortcuts and the control pannel are also there, but everything is in english.
-if I open a window, e.g. the browser, it opens on the first monitor and it is not possible to move it to the second monitor
-the only thing that I can move on both monitors is the mouse pointer

:confused:

What did I do wrong? Does anyone please have any sugestion? Please, I need your help. Or is this just the way it should work when using multiple X screens?:(

Below the content of my X86Config file, maybe it helps.
