Rotating screen for 90 degress?

Postby Koninator » Tue Mar 29, 2011 4:17 am

Hi,
I have one 23" (1920x1080) screen rotated CCW for 90 degress and one 19" (1280x1024) not rotated.
I'm using nVidia drivers and i want to have one screen trugh those 2 monitors - TwinView.

so problem is when I rotate screen, picture rotates on all monitors. So i want to rotate only 23" monitor.

Code: Select all

Under monitor I have rotate option, there is no difference if that text is present or not.
If i set my configuration to separate screen, there is no problem whit rotating screens. But I can't move window from one Xserver to another.

I have tried. and failed. I ended up connecting a second box, and using x forewarding through ssh, to run my apps from machine 1 onto the screen of machine 2. I also used synergy, to share the mouse. Although this does not solve the nvidia rotate only one screen problem. It did provide a work around to get a screen for development.
