View Full Version : [ubuntu] TwinView option Greyed out?

November 3rd, 2008, 03:26 PM
Fresh install of Intrepid with dual monitors (19" and 22") with dual 8600GTs. I installed the 177 drivers broke X but that was fixed by specifying which card to use. Now, i had TwinView working great on Hardy, but for some reason, when i go int o nvidia-settings, TwinView is greyed out and i can only select "Separate X Session" which i dont want. I even tried manually setting Twinview to 1 in my xorg.conf to see if that would help but alas, im still stuck. Am i just missing something or is there some reason TwinView is not available to me?

EDIT: found my problem - i needed to have both monitors on one card (forgot i had switched them) and bounced X and it worked.

I seem to have the same problem, but I have a card with 2 GPU's (nVidia 9800 GTX2). Any idea how to get TwinView working?
