Nvidia G-sync with multi-monitor setup

Post by PatrikOnLinux »

I'm running a 1080 TI with a G-sync monitoring and Linux Mint 19 (64-bit) Cinnamon.
I recently installed the latest Nvidia drivers 410.66 that was released a couple of days ago.

On google I see some old (2017 and back) forum post saying that G-sync does not work with multi-monitor setup were not all is G-sync monitors.
Is this still true? Have anybody got this to work?
Some forum post says that Cinnamon is not compatible with G-sync due to Compositior in Cinnamon.
But i haven't found a way to try to disable the Compositior in Cinnomon to test this.

In Nvidia X-server i've enabled "Sync to VBlank", "Allow flipping", "allow G-sync", "Enable G-sync Visual Indicator".
But in-game i dont even get the visual indicator in the top right corner. It doen't even shows as "off".

I tried it in a native game Rise of the tomb raider.
I've ran in to a stop on this and don't know what to do next.
I'm quite new to Linux and hope you guys can help me :)

Forgot something.
