Default Dual Monitors Twin View on Nvidia

One possible solution is using the "nvidia-settings"-Tool.
You can configure your display-settings in a GUI and save it
permanently to an xorg file.

I'm using this method since years and it works very well and flawlessly.

Zitat von James Allsopp <jamesaallsopp@googlemail.com>:


Hi,
I've a small 4:3 monitor which was working fine with Debian at about
1152x864 (VGA connection) on a nvidia 9500GT with the proprietary drivers
(sorry want to experiment with CUDA so non-free wasn't an option). However,
I've just bought a new 1080p TV and connected it to the computer via HDMI.
This unfortunately has permanently knocked the resolution down on the
monitor to 800x600, which is next to unusable. Would anyone with a similar
configuration be willing to share an xorg.conf or share some advice on this.
I think I'd like the monitor to be either 1280x960, 1152x864, 1024x768 and
the TV to work at 1600x900 1366x768 or 1280x720.


Thanks for any help!
Jim

Sure, here is my "xorg.conf" for a dual dvi-d setup:

Default Dual Monitors Twin View on Nvidia

This tool is really useful. I am using two screens with a Nvidia GeForce
FX5700 on this computer. I do not use `twin view' but `dual screen.'
Here is my whole xorg.conf. You might notice that nvidia-settings did
the whole stuff for me.

Default Dual Monitors Twin View on Nvidia

Hi,

Here's my xorg. If I manually try to change the resolution the small
Dell E175FP turns off, and can only be reactivated by going into
nvidia-settings and setting either 640x480 or 320xsomething low.
Wonderinf it's a dpi issue, as my other screen's a bit big.



Any suggestions* gratefully received.



Jim
