Drag and drop makes selected item shift to the left? is xorg.conf problem?


I have quite a strange problem.

When I select an icon and want to drag and drop it, it's being shifted to left for exactly the width of left monitor.

I believe there is some problem with my configuration of X, so I'm attaching xorg.conf too.

Other important info: OS is Debian wheezy with nVidia drivers from nvidia.com (not from repos.) and with upgrade from wheezy-backports

Here is xorg.conf:

(one monitor is turned for 90 degrees)

That is probably it, the drivers from repos will probably run fine w/o that kind of bug, the way to go is to install the nvidia-kernel-dkms, it will set you up.

Usualy the xorg.conf doesn't generate that kind of problem.

What video cards model do you have there?

This one: NVIDIA NVS 5400M http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-...M.76731.0.html

Ah, the problem is that they doesn't work at all. For whatever reason, drivers from repository if installed, block from booting... Simply stops + once i add kernel from wheezy backports it's not possible to install them too.
