View Full Version : [ubuntu] Rotating dual nvidia screens on Jaunty

June 5th, 2009, 05:36 PM

I just finished installing Jaunty and set up the dual monitors using System->Preferences->Display. Then it asked me to install the nvidia drivers, which I did. So I had to set up the dual monitors using the nvidia-settings manager again. However, none of the tools allowed me to specify the rotation of the screens. I tried to add various things in the xorg configuration file and none of them worked. Especially confused I am abou the Virtual display and that the screens are not listed individually. I have the content of my xorg file attached. What changes do I need to make to get one or both screens to rotate?

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Virtual 3200 1236

Section "Module"
Load "glx"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NoLogo" "True"

I think you need to use the nvidia manager and reset your xorg to the default state.
(sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg) Backup the current xorg just in case you might need it later.

Thanks, but I have tried that. It brings me back to zero, having both screens mirrored. It still does not allow me to rotate the screens.
