Linux Mint with 3 Asus Monitors, 2 NVidia 9500 GT
Posted on 2012-12-27
I just installed Mint 14 with KDE and am a Linux noobie. I have 3 Asus displays. Two are on Card 1 and one is on Card 2
Both cards are NVidia 9500GT.
I had the Card one monitors working correctly. In order to get the second card recognized, I installed the current-nvidia-update driver. It recognizes all three. Problem is that now the two on the first card are like one large monitor and the third is not accessible by the mouse.
I am not running Xcinema.
I have tried putting the first card into Twin mode and also into stand alone. Nothing seems to take away the fact that the screen is extended across two monitors. In the Nvidia setup, the three screens are there, but the third one is a different color and can not run in a "Twin " mode.
SO I'm hosed on a number of fronts.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
