Re:Configuring xorg with twinview


Hi all, I just installed Slack 10 RC1 and its my first time using xorg, I got the nvidia drivers going OK, but configuring twinview is causing some problems.I just pasted my twinview options from my redhat installation, which looks like this:

#######################################

SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1600x1200" "1152x864" "1024x768"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1600x1200" "1152x864" "1024x768"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1600x1200" "1152x864" "1024x768"
EndSubSection
Option "Twinview" "on"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30.0-97.0"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50-180"
Option "MetaModes" "1600x1200" "1152x864" "1024x768"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
EndSection

############################################

and I'm wondering if I'm doing anything wrong.

Cheers

There are a couple of things that look wrong to me. First off the Twinview options should go under "Device" not "Screen". Next "TwinView" does not have a "On" option. Finally MetaModes are a single array of pairs. So the Twinview options should be moved to Device and the device should look something like this.

Code:
Section "Device"
      Identifier   "Nvidia"
      Driver       "nvidia"
      Option "Twinview"
      Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30.0-97.0"
      Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50-180"
      Option "MetaModes" "1600x1200, 1600x1200; 1152x864, 1152x864; 1024x768,1024x768"
      Option "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
EndSection
Identifier should be whatever you named it (not necessarily Nvidia) but Deiver and the rest look right for what you gave. You can also have different resolution settings for each monitor, I kept them the same for simplicity.

Thanks Mephisto, i knew it would be something simple, the monitors are the same so it should work, thanks again.
