Default Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

Without TwinView I also have one of two screens rotated. However, I need to be able to drag windows between monitors as well as use the same firefox profile on both monitors. To do this I use Xinerama, which creates one screen for both monitors.

What I lose is compositing and any fancy graphics on my desktop, which I would have with TwinView. Again, Nvidia, please work on rotating one of two monitors with TwinView for Linux!!!


Here is my xorg.conf for reference:

Code:

EndSection
