Hi all,

does anybody use Nvidia TwinView and two displays? I have problem that when i run NVIDIA X server settings tool, it recognizes monitors, but when i enable second monitor, it is allways set to be the primary, but i want it secondary. After some unspecified switching of monitor modes, or position, it gets changed ,but it is a random and i don`t know what is the cause of switch. How do you do this?

thanks
H.

Code:
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Geforce card"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    Option      "NoLogo"    "true"
    Option      "TwinView"  "on"
    Option      "TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder"   "DFP-0, DFP-1"
    Option      "TwinViewOrientation"  "DFP-1 RightOf DFP-0"
EndSection

Adjust output names as necessary. And note, this is the *only* thing you need in xorg.conf, you don't need the entire kitchen sink that nvidia-settings puts in there.
