Default How to enable "Twinview" + "rotated one monitor" in redhat?

Hi guys,

I got a situation that one 22" monitor and one rotated 90 degree 17" monitor are connected to a 9500GT display card.
My computer have just be installed RedHat Enterprise 6.0 Beta (Santiago), X Window is working fine -application can be dragged between this two screens.

However, after installing NVidia driver (version 195.36.24), I found the screen of the 17" monitor cannot be rotated in Twinview mode - Redhat treat them as one screen, and "option rotate left" rotated whole screen.
In separate X screen mode, my screen of the 17" monitor can be rotated 90 degree, and keep 0 degree for the 22" monitor, but applications cannot be dragged between this two screens.

Did anyone have the experience to enable "Twinview" + "rotated one monitor" in Linux?

BTW, "Desktop Effects" cannot be turned on even this driver was installed. Do you have idea too?


You could have reference my xorg.conf:

It is not possible to rotate just one monitor with twinview.

Hi Adam,

Therefore I can only use original driver (come from Redhat), and enjoy "dragging app between two monitor" and "rotating one monitor"?

I'm not sure what the "original" driver is capable of, only that the nvidia driver can not do what you want.

Separate X screens + Xinerama will allow you to rotate monitors individually, and move windows between monitors.
