View Full Version : [all variants] Multiseat nVidia

September 27th, 2010, 02:51 PM

I've been trying to set up multiseat for a while now (2 displays and two pairs of keyboard and mouse) but nothing seems to be working. I only have one graphics card (that can handle two displays though). I've tried several guides found while googling, and some preconfigured software (userful and mdm) but I can't get it to work.

What I seemed to get closest with was to create two "server layout"s in xorg.conf but it won't start both of them. Do I need two graphics card maybe? How about Xephyr, is that a good idea? (if yes, then how? ^^) Anyone got something like userful or mdm running?

I'm running Debian Squeeze (posting here since this forum is very active, and the differences aren't that big) 64bit with a nVidia 9600GT and GNOME.

I would really appreciate some help on this, as I really would like a multiseat setup instead of another computer.
