Hey Guys, I was wondering if someone could help me.
I'm having a problem getting dual monitors to work with my Geforce 7950x2. I'm using the nVidia propriety drivers, and one widescreen (1680x1050) and one normal (1280x1024).
The standard mint Screen Resolution thing was no use, so I dug around a bit and found displayconfig-gtk. It shows two Screen 1 and one Screen 2, I deduced each Screen 1 represented each monitor, yet which one to use as my main monitor, after figuring which was my widescreen, with some effort got it to work and with full resolution (however having it set to plug'n'play monitor prevented me from choosing it's native resolution (and widescreen was ticked) so I chose a 1680x1050 LCD panel), so then I enabled screen 2, configured it to extend my desktop, set it to 1280x1024 LCD panel and selected 1280x1024 resolution for it. Applied changes and logged out and rebooted.
Then x-org failed to start and chucked me back to low graphics mode.
I'm stuck, really stuck, sometimes I have both monitors on, except the second is just a mass of colours, and when using the open source drivers the desktop is cloned between the two but no way to extend my desktop.
If theres anyone who has configured their Geforce 7950x2 to work, I would appreciate knowing how you did it, and if not, any pointers would be good.
Thanks in advance
