November 11th, 2009, 06:58 AM
Hey everyone. I recently set up dual screens on my desktop. As of now i have it running TwinView mode. (One X display) I wanted to know what the other users out there have set up.

When I use it I use two X displays.

nvidia still doesn't do vsync on multiple screens in ubuntu, so I don't really bother with it. I only turn on my secondary screen when I really need it, and I just use the twinview option from nvidia-settings.

Poll question is little confusing at first.
I have one solid desktop running Xinerama on my ATI 4850 with a 19"LCD and a 20" LCD(main).

I only have one screen. I'd love another one for when I'm working in GIMP and Blender at the same time. Or, if I'm working on a model, have some reference images up on the second screen.

I use 2 screens most of the time, as I like to watch tv on one, and surf/work on the other.

I normally either have 3 monitors + a HD projector, or just 3 monitors. Great for doing work/playing games. Ideal for programming (test it out in one monitor, see the code on another, and then have something to watch on the other)
