http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hello I'm new on the Linux Scene, i've installed Fedora 12 two days ago and since then I'm trying to figure out how to solve my problem on working with 2 monitors but with no success. Let me try to explain my situation: I got 2 monitors, one is widescreen and other is a normal screen, i've already put the 2 monitors work fine with TwinView in nvidia-settings but the problem is my second screen is a widescreen and the resolutions that Fedora gives me to that monitor non of them are wide resolutions. I tried to change it manually on xorg.conf but with no success. On nvidia-settings it detects my first screen name "BENQ" but the second one wich is the widescreen doesnt detect the model, only says "CRT-0" maybe because nvidia cant detect my widescreen model it's not giving me the wide resolutions. My actual xorg.conf file: Quote: # nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings # nvidia-settings: version 1.0 ([email protected]) Sun Nov 22 21:43:09 EST 2009 Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "Layout0" Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0 InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard" InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer" Option "Xinerama" "0" EndSection Section "Files" FontPath "/usr/share/fonts/default/Type1" EndSection Section "InputDevice" # generated from default Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice" Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" EndSection Section "InputDevice" # generated from data in "/etc/sysconfig/keyboard" Identifier "Keyboard0" Driver "kbd" Option "XkbLayout" "pt" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" EndSection Section "Monitor" # HorizSync source: xconfig, VertRefresh source: xconfig Identifier "Monitor0" VendorName "Unknown" ModelName "CRT-0" HorizSync 31.0 - 84.0 VertRefresh 56.0 - 77.0 Option "DPMS" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Device0" Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" BoardName "GeForce 6600" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Screen0" Device "Device0" Monitor "Monitor0" DefaultDepth 24 Option "TwinView" "1" Option "TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder" "CRT-1" Option "metamodes" "CRT-0: 1400x1050 +0+0, CRT-1: 1280x1024_75 +1400+0" SubSection "Display" Depth 24 EndSubSection EndSection I Hope someone can help me... it is driving me crazy :X Thanks in advance, Regards (HowTos)
