Default Re: How to get full screen with nvidia driver ?

Well you have to setup the proper metamodes. For example, I run TwinView in 2080x1080, but some of my apps need fullscreen 1280x1024 and 640x480, so my metamode line looks like

Option         "metamodes" "TV: 800x600 +1280+0, DFP: 1280x1024_60 +0+0; DFP: 1280x1024 +0+0,NULL; DFP: 640x480 +0+0,NULL"
You also need to turn off GPU scaling via the nvidia-settings utility to get the smaller resolutions such as 640x480, at least this has been my experience.
