Re: Options for adding a third monitor
I have the following set up:
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce 9800 GTX] (rev a2)
04:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce 9800 GTX] (rev a2)
2 the same monitors (1920x1200) connected to first VGA (via DVI),
1 monitor (1024x768) connected to second VGA (via VGA cable with VGA->DVI).
I'd like to have the first two monitors in TwinView, and the third available in anyway.
Right now I have Xinerama enabled on all monitors and "Separate X screen" enabled in nvidia-settings. It would be ok, but the overall GUI performance is bad, moving windows (not only web browsers, also konsole) is slow.
When I disconnect the third monitor and turn on TwinView on the first two ones the GUI performance is good.
I just want to use the third monitor in such a way that the first two monitors work the same.
I don't need Xinerama at all (as I see it is causing all the trouble), however a possibility to move windows between 1st and 2nd monitor is a must.
Do you have any ideas how to set this up?
Or maybe it's not possible?
How about running another instance of Xorg for the third monitor, is it somehow possible?
