Hello together,

unfortunately I can't configure my HDMI connected monitor to be right of my DVI connected Monitor.
The HDMI monitor is always left of the other monitor.

/etc/X11/xorg.conf:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Mouse0"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
    Driver         "kbd"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Device0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BoardName      "GeForce GTX 1070"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "DVI-D-0"
    ModelName      "Philips PHL 242G5"
    Option         "DPMS"
    Option         "Primary" "true"
    Option         "PreferredMode" "1920x1080_144"
    HorizSync       30.0 - 160.0
    VertRefresh     50.0 - 146.0
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "HDMI-0"
    ModelName      "Philips PHL 242G5"
    Option         "DPMS"
    Option         "PreferredMode" "1920x1080_144"
    HorizSync       30.0 - 160.0
    VertRefresh     50.0 - 146.0
    Option         "RightOf" "DVI-D-0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Device0"
    Monitor        "HDMI-0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "Stereo" "0"
    #Option         "nvidiaXineramaInfoOrder" "DFP-0"
    Option         "SLI" "Off"
    Option         "MultiGPU" "Off"
    Option         "BaseMosaic" "off"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
    EndSubSection
EndSection


/var/log/Xorg.0.log:

I don't want to switch the monitors physically ...
I want to understand

Thanks in advance,
best

Code:
    Option         "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf" "DFP-0"

It should move hdmi monitor to the right of the other one
Actually put that in Section "Screen"

Solved my problem:
https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/310301/prevent-mate-display-settings-override-nvidia-settings

Does someone know why the mate-display-properties window shows a black canvas, where the monitors should be shown?
