Default Default monitor

Hello All!

I'm about to put my old Radeon back in since I can't get the dual displays switched around on my new 6600GT.

I have tryed everything I could find about dual headed configurations with the latest NV drivers. Using SLackware 10 here, so it's xorg. Tryed all sorts of screen and twinview arrangements without solving my problem at any stage.

The problem is that both displays work properly, and I am able to get extended desktop on my CRT/LCD setup. However default display is the CRT and that's what I want to change,

Any usefull feedback will be greatly appreciated. There has to be a way to do this.

Here are the relevant sections from /etc/X11/xorg.conf:



Section "Device"
Identifier "nvidia0"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "TwinView" "true"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024"
Option "HorizSync" "DFP-0: 31.5-79.9; CRT-0: 31.5-79.9"
Option "VertRefresh" "DFP-0: 60-75; CRT-0: 60-75"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "CursorShadow" "true"
# Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-0, CRT-0"
BusID "PCI:3:0:0"
Screen 0
EndSection

The config file you posted is very weird you are mixing twinview and seperate X desktops, better try this:

Section "Device"
Identifier "nvidia0"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "HorizSync" "DFP-0: 31.5-79.9"
Option "VertRefresh" "DFP-0: 60-75"
Option "CursorShadow" "true"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-0"
BusID "PCI:3:0:0"
Screen 0
EndSection

Option "VertRefresh" "CRT-0: 60-75"

BusID "PCI:3:0:0"
Screen 1
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "nvidia0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024"
