Default Re: Official NVIDIA Linux control panel feedback thread

I can't agree more with the reply that had asked for twinview support.

I'm on a dual Xeon workstation with a 6800 ultra (and have another workstation with a 1300) and just today I had my main SGI monitor finally go tits up after 4 years of good service. Since I had matching GDM-4011P monitors till now it wasn't much of an issue. Settings we're pretty straightforward.

Now I am forced to work with mis-matched GDM-20E21 and a GDM-4011P running twinview and I can't even get them to play together on this card.

Maybe it's just me and my being a knucklehead, but I tried just about everything and nothing. Either one would work or the other but not both at the same time.

If the nvidia-settings utility had the ability to update the xorg.conf file I would be MUCH happier. I would even be happy if it just spit out a text file with monitor and twinview settings that I could paste into my xorg.conf file.

Googling around for the right settings is an exercise in frustration because they all seem to conflict with one another... some from hacks some from people who know what they're doing, but who's to know one from the other?

Seems like a trivial issue and if they would just put someone on it it seems it could be solved in a hurry.

[here's my old xorg.conf] if anyone has a good idea on getting it to work with one GDM-4011P and another GDM-20E21 I would be greatful!
