Default Re: TwinView on Ubuntu Edgy

I have a couple of CRTs set to different resolutions, using separate screens - ie, no window dragging.

I found the easiest way to set it up was to use 'nvidia-settings'. On Ubuntu, I found the best way to run it was to open a Terminal, type 'sudo bash' and enter my password, then type 'nvidia-settings'.

You want the 'X Server Display Configuration' page. On the right hand side, there is a button labelled 'Configure...'. Press that, and select 'Seperate X screen'. Press OK. You can make other adjustments here, like the positioning of the screen, resolutions, etc. When you are finished, press the 'Save to X Configuration File' button. This will generate a new /etc/X11/xorg.conf file for you, backing up the previous file.

Hope that helps
