View Full Version : [SOLVED] 11.04 Dual Monitors

July 5th, 2011, 05:26 AM
Hi, I have trying to get my 2nd monitor working. I can access it, and open a terminal or folder etc, but none of the windows are created correctly with the proper borders and I can't type anything in them. My primary monitor works fine, and this all worked great on 10.10.

My graphics card is: nVidia Corporation GT200 [GeForce GTX 260]

I've looked at some other posts, but couldn't find a solution.

I had a look at the proprietary drivers (through system settings) and it lists the NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver however it also mentions:

"this driver is activated but not currently in use"

Any ideas why that would be?

Ok, so I got it working by switching the Nvidia-settings to Twinview. It seems like the only option that worked properly.
