Hi,

At work, I'm using two 1920x1200 (external, one using DVI and one VGA) monitors on a single nVidia card in a laptop. Last week, this was working fine, but I had to take my laptop home for the weekend and so needed to use it on the small laptop screen. Now that I'm back at work, I'm trying to make it work on the two external monitors again, and it is mostly ok but the top panel is on the right screen and the bottom panel is on the left screen.

I'm using the monitors in 'TwinView' mode, with the left one as the 'primary', and I'm configuring them using 'NVIDIA X Server Settings'.

I've tried starting from scratch by running 'nvidia-xconfig' and working from there, but it doesn't make any difference.

Any way to make it like it was before, with both panels on the left screen?

ubuntu 9.04 with latest updates

Max.
