Does anybody know how to disable XineramaInfo on the new Nvidia drivers?
I have a monitor (IBM T221) that uses multiple DVI connections to drive one display: each conection corresponds to a section of the monitor. It should not be treated like separate monitors.
Previously, in 12.04, I configured TwinView and used the "NoTwinViewXineramaInfo" option to get the behavior I wanted.
My old xorg.conf had:
The new driver seems to ignore this setting. TwinView works fine, but programs behave like I have two monitors: Some fullscreen apps, like VLC or XBMC only use one section. KDE thinks I have multiple monitors, so it sets up different backgrounds for each section, windows are maximized to one section, etc..Code:Section "Screen" ... Option "NoTwinViewXineramaInfo" "True" ...
Reading the documentation for the driver (http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...igoptions.html), the option has been renamed (though the old name is kept for backwards compatibility): "nvidiaXineramaInfo" "off". The described behavior is the same, but setting the option in xorg.conf also apparently does nothing:
How can I get the driver to present my TwinView configuration as one logical monitor like I had it in 12.04?Code:Section "Screen" ... Option "nvidiaXineramaInfo" "off" ...
