Question Xscreensaver with Twinview not as expected.

I'm a little confused, I've just stuck a Quadro 4 in my work machine and I've got twinview running nicely, but Xscreensaver rather than running as one big screen runs a seperate screensaver for each monitor.

I'm sure my box at home just runs one instance across both screens. I can't find anything in Xscreensaver's settings or any differences in the XF86Configs to resolve this.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Default Re: Xscreensaver with Twinview not as expected.

Read the docs that came with xscreensaver this a new setup and is considered correct.
If you want them to stretch across the screens go back to version 4.12 (or possibibly 4.13)

The change was made as some of the screen savers expected a specific screen ratio and left some parts undrawn/unblanked.

the website is here http://www.jwz.org/xscreensaver/

Hello,
By adding this to your xorg.conf under Section "Screen" :

Option "NoTwinViewXineramaInfo" "on"

X-screensaver will display only one hack over both screens. The trade-off is that requsting a maximum sized window in your window manager will result in a window the fullwidth of both screens; there may be others but none I have come across.

NV6800, 7174 version drivers.

Cheers,
Zaug
