Good Morning,

I cannot find the TwinView options in nvidia-settings; is it gone? I tried enabling it manually in xorg.conf but then the server won't start.

Nvidia Driver: 340.76
X: 1.16.4
Kernel: 3.18.11

If, for whatever reason, it's gone is there a way to enable the same functionality? I.e two screens whereby you can move applications between then and maximize them without it filling both monitors?

TIA

Not sure, maybe TwinView was removed after nVidia made friends with xrandr. I have been using xrandr for a long time to manage my dual monitor setup.

Any tips how-to achieve what I'm looking for? Maximizing across two monitors is driving me nutty.

I have this in my ~/.xinitrc
Code:
xrandr --auto --output DVI-I-3 --left-of DVI-I-2

It is for my setup, indeed.
Your apps must be aware of multiscreen, make sure you have xinerama enabled globally.
