I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Haron with 2 17" Acers Nvidia 8600 GT graphics card dual core 3.0 processor 4 gigs. So I know it's possible to have dual monitor setup, but how to enable it without compromizing the yummy eye candy that compiz has shown me!?!
I try to start nvidia settings but when it loads it prompts me saying:
So I do what it tells me, run sudo nvidia-xconfig and reboot and it boots up fine, but it did not fix the issue.
You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver.
Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig`
as root), and restart the X server.
