2) open nvidia-settings (if you want to keep the configuration: open it as root / with sudo)

3) click on X Screen Display Configuration

4) click on detect displays

5) configure the displays

6) if you want to keep the configuration, click on Save to X config file

7) close nvidia-settings

I have heard of "nvidia-settings" tossed around a few times, but was unable to find a link to it and a quick search via google I was unable to produce any results pertaining to my distro, Kubuntu.

So pretty much it sounds like "nvidia-settings" is kinda like Nvidia Control Panel(Windows) but for Linux, correct?
