View Full Version : [ubuntu] Multiple X windows and primary

December 24th, 2008, 05:54 PM
I'm running multiple x windows with one being my monitor and the other the TV (nividia card not using twinview or xinerama). I've got the monitor set up as Display 0 and Screen 0, but it seems the computer is treating the TV as the primary display. For example, when booting all of the boot information is shown on the TV and not on the monitor. How do I make the monitor the primary display?

This is mainly important because if the TV is not on then it doesn't recognize it and switches to a new xorg.conf that only has one display (the monitor).

Anyone? I'm sure there has got to be a simple solution, but I can't find it.
