    Screen resolution dual screens

    Hi,

    I've just installed KDE4 along side an ubuntu intall with the default gnome DE. I have dual monitors set up in gnome which work fine configured as two separate screens using nvidia-settings.
    Screen0 - 1920x1200
    Screen1 - 1440x900

    The resolution of the screens in KDE are fine but I either get a restricted desktop on screen one which is the size of 1440x900 or the screens are as one continuous monitor but in the wrong order (i.e. screen0 is to the right of screen1) Does the nvidia-settings manager not work in KDE or am I missing something?

    Thanks

    J

    There should be a way to swap the screens in nvidia-settings, something like "right of" or "left of". You might need to switch from "basic" to "advanced".
