Default Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

I was also hoping this had been implemented from the last time I tried it. I'm not asking for much--just to rotate one of my displays.

Exclamation Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

+1, I've been wanting this too. I am both a gamer and programmer. Having a monitor in portrait mode is great for a lot of things... coding, documents, pdf viewing, portrait photography. But being forced to have two monitors in portrait mode greatly decreases the usefulness. Now if I want to play a game or watch a movie or work on a landscape photo, I have to rotate both monitors back to landscape and change my X configuration. It would be so much nicer if we could have the benefits of both landscape and portrait mode at the same time. This is something that not just consumers would benefit from either. Photography professionals could use this too. I usually have a mixture of landscape and portrait photos, and having one monitor in each orientation would be extremely helpful.

If this was supported, I would probably buy a third monitor. I would have one 1920x1200 landscape monitor in the center, with a 1680x1050 portrait monitor on each side. Or maybe the other way... portrait in the center and two landscapes on the side. Or even two vertically stacked landscapes with a portrait on the side.

Default Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

(same as 07-15-09, 11:05 AM / 01-24-09, 01:55 PM / 09-06-07, 03:59 PM and so on)

Up !!

Is there a way to allow this rotation of only one screen in twinview mode ?

I just check from time to time.. It s a pity to have such a nice graphic card and dual monitors and not be able to do this simple thing !

Anything which looks like an answer would be valuable ...

Thanks!

Default Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

Hey guys, Just wanted to add that I would love to have this feature as well!

My smaller monitor swivels, and would be perfect sideways next to the big one. I can't go xinerama because I don't want to lose composite.

Also with rotation support, I would love to see a way of setting the subpixel antialiasing to have different settings for the different monitors. Both are RGB, but swiveled, the right one would become VRGB, causing subpixel fonts to look funny. I know that part is out of the nvidia realm, however.

I would also love to see this feature implemented!

That is, in a dual-display setup, the ability to use TwinView and rotate only one of the displays.

Default Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

Is there anyway to give feedback directly to nvidia on this issue? I've searched there site and didn't come up with much, outside calling the sales department. Did find a feedback form regarding windows drivers...

Default Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

Without Twinview on a GeForce 7600 GT, I have one of two screens rotated. Here are the pertinent sections of my xorg.conf (special items bolded), also note the resolution of the rotated screen is x/y flipped (900x1440):
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Default Layout"
    Screen      0  "Screen0" 
    Screen      1  "Screen1" leftOf "Screen0"
    InputDevice    "Generic Keyboard"
    InputDevice    "Configured Mouse"
    Option         "Xinerama" "0"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Monitor1"
    VendorName     "Unknown"
    ModelName      "HSD HW191D"
    HorizSync       30.0 - 80.0
    VertRefresh     49.0 - 75.0
    Option         "RandRRotation" "on"
    Option         "Rotate" "CW"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Monitor0"
    VendorName     "Unknown"
    ModelName      "HSD HW191D"
    HorizSync       30.0 - 80.0
    VertRefresh     49.0 - 75.0
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen1"
    Device         "Device1"
    Monitor        "Monitor1"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "TwinView" "0"
    Option         "metamodes" "DFP-1: 900x1440 +900+0"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
    EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Device0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "TwinView" "0"
    Option         "metamodes" "DFP-0: 1440x900 +0+0"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
    EndSubSection
EndSection
  • The tall (rotated) screen is excellent for viewing PDFs and long web pages.
  • Dragging from one screen to the other is not possible, fine by me.
  • Trying to open a link in one screen while Firefox is in the other screen is not possible (error results). It would be nice if that worked.

Default Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

Without TwinView I also have one of two screens rotated. However, I need to be able to drag windows between monitors as well as use the same firefox profile on both monitors. To do this I use Xinerama, which creates one screen for both monitors.

What I lose is compositing and any fancy graphics on my desktop, which I would have with TwinView. Again, Nvidia, please work on rotating one of two monitors with TwinView for Linux!!!


Here is my xorg.conf for reference:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Default Layout"
    Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
    Screen      1  "Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"
    InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "Module"
    Load           "dbe"
    Load           "extmod"
    Load           "type1"
    Load           "freetype"
    Load           "glx"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
    Option         "Xinerama" "1"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
    Driver         "kbd"

I would also like to see that feature as soon as possible.
If it is not possible or too difficult to implement i'd be happy to read a short explanation.

The above comments apply for me as well. I am a software developer using my laptop and have a second screen attached to it for coding. Since I cannot physically rotate my laptop screen, having both screens in portrait just doesn't work. I've also tried the X configuration option, but it causes other issues and is not elegant in any case.

Desired functionality... It is sad that nvidia driver doesn't provide such featute

May be this dereliction will trend people to understand all the disadvantages of semi-functional binary shi**y blobs in comparison with open-source drivers and software on the whole.
