Using dual monitors - my prefered monitor is dected as second


I am trying to use dual monitors with xinerema. I have NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT whith analog cable (Monitor HP 1740) and digital cable (monitor HP LP2065).

What I need is to detect better one monitor (HP LP2065, digitaL cable) as first. Is this possible?

In your xorg.conf you have a "ServerLayout" section with these line:

Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
Screen 1 "Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"

All you need to do is reverse them, put "Screen0" RightOf "Screen1" - in other words, just swap the positioning of them.


Does that achieve what you're trying to do? The way I read it, you want them flipped relative to each other, right?
