LCD display through a mirror


Hello,

I have a lcd monitor that will be showed through a mirror. So i need to reflect this image. Currently i have a Debian Etch system with a nvidia FX 5500 but i really don't know what should i change on xorg.

How can i do this?

Should i use another graphic card?

I believe that the nvidia has an option to do this. Look in your nvidia docs for the xrandr option and command. Try "xrandr -q" to see which rotation and reflection modes are possible on your device.

Also, try running "krandrtray". Right click on the monitor icon in the tray, and select "Configure Display". See if the "Mirror Horizontally" option is available or ghosted.
