i have asus nvidia geforce 6200 grafic card and i have linux mandrake 9.1 . i have succesfully downloaded the driver , it's working, but i have two monitor and i want to use the second one, extended desktop. ?n windows XP i can do it, how i can do this in Linux Mandrake 9.1?
at last i have realised extended desktop , it's perfect for my configuration ,
i have readen this link , i changed a little what must be done :
http: // download.nvidia.com / XFree86 / Linux-x86/1.0-8178/README/ appendix-g . html
and then it worked i can even place extended dual wallpaper on my screens like 1600*1200 ..... etc...
good luck ...
It's working! And it was incredibly easy to set it up:
As I wrote before, "I have laptop Acer 5024 with Ati X700 and proprietary Ati drivers 8.22.5 running Ubuntu 5.10."
There are these few steps:
1. Backup xorg.conf
2. run "aticonfig --initial=dual-head --screen-layout=right" (I have the second monitor on the right side)
It was running fine, but on the sec. monitor was completly new desktop!
3. Then "aticonfig --dtop=horizontal --overlay-on=1" fix it!
