xinerama multiple

The nvidia configuration tool will be able to construct the xorg. I used nvidia-settings to enable the three monitors: The problem is, there are two levels of joins: Because the X server is single-threaded, rendering takes more time by the number of cards. The “Meta Modes” is where the configuration really lies – this tells the driver how you want the displays configured. Some window managers assume a rectangular display area, and enforce this by creating excess “dead space” at the edges of a display. Beyond that, the “Second Monitor” options are because my second monitor doesn’t support EDID frequency lookups, so I have to tell the driver its refresh rates.

I would say everything goes ok between 3 times out of 4 or 4 times out of Xinerama is deprecated and now makes things crash, but X. Each xnierama is connected to a rotatable monitor, as it happens via DVI.


I have no problem if I only use one card at a time. Here is the output of: This article explains the basic concepts and terms related to monitors and graphics cards in the X11 world.

For example, an 8-bit screen cannot be combined with a bit screen. In my case ” xrandr –addmode VGA-1 x”.

I do have 1 Quadroand 2 Quadro s. So, unplug all your monitors except for one, then execute the following command: Bascially, what your current xorg. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. I have been using i3 on my laptop and think it is fantastic, I would really like to use it at work as well.

I have not tried it, having switched to using ATI cards with Eyefinity and using displayport monitors when I need xinerams than 2.

It can handle dual-head displays, where both monitors are connected to separate outputs on the same video card, but does not work as well with outputs on two different cards. So not worth backporting it for lucid. Could I increase xineram monitor count to 12 if I add another quadro?

It requires that the physical screens to have the same bit depth. I don’t think the image is necessary for understanding, it just shows that all three monitors are enabled in the Nvidia Settings Window. Planned maintenance scheduled April 23, at Related questions Is there a way to keybind display changes?

So really wonder if there is multiplf way we can hope this bug be solved It may not work, or it may have annoying features. When you enabled ‘mirror screens’, both the monitors will show the same display, you can disable it if you want.


ATI For users with an ati radeon card I found an xorg.

Xinerama (multiple monitors)

Hi all, I have 3 monitors and 2 nvidia cards attached to my computer at work. I baught my new computer to do 3 monitors. TwinView requires the binary nVidia Driver, which means only nVidia cards are supported. When I enable Xinerama in my xorg. TwinView avoids the drawbacks of the Xinerama feature, but has a completely non-standard way of configuring it. When using a Radeon RV AR using the radeon driver, sometimes the second head is not properly detected, I used rxrandr to add the missing screen resolutions.

I also tried very hard to get this type of setup working without much sucess 2x nvidia cards. Other than that, I have been testing the new drm module for a few hours and have to say that, without using AGPGartSize not to get the borking of my screenthis one seems to be more stable for the, strange I have to confess two cards, with a mergedfb pseudo xinerama on one of them, and a third monitor for mythtvuse I have of it:
