> Hi all,
> Good to hear lots of people are having no problems with karmic. Unfortnately I've hit a big problem. I use two monitors as two separate X servers using a geforce GTS8600 graphics card. This was working well under jaunty, but only one screen is now supported under karmic.
> I've filed a bug and it looks like at least one other person has had problems with a similar card. I wonder if anyone else has struggled with this.
> I've switched to debian in the meantime, but having resolution issues there!
> How many people out there use dual monitors? Is the general poor support for dual monitors a conequence of the closed source nature of the graphics drivers? I would ideally like to use kde, but this doesn't support dual screens at all.
> Any comments?
Different card (9600GT), but I have dual screen working with TwinView
via the nvidia-settings. It's not ideal for a permanent dual screen
setup as it needs to be reapplied each boot, but at least it should
work as a temporary solution.
