Four Monitors

2

I finally got my final setup working with the monitors I got off fatwallet.

This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done. It took me a long time to get it working on linux but I finally got it so that I can use all 4 monitors on the same computer at once.

Here are the important parts of my xorg.conf file:


Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
Screen 1 "Screen1" Above "Screen0"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "Device"

Option "TwinView"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSynch" "31-82"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "56-76"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024, 1280x1024"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "LeftOf"
Identifier "Videocard1"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX (generic)"
BusId "PCI:0:10:0"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Option "TwinView"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSynch" "31-82"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "56-76"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024, 1280x1024"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "LeftOf"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX (generic)"
BusId "AGP:1:0:0"
EndSection

I also have 2 basic monitor sections and 2 basic screen sections in the file. There’s nothing special about either one of them.

I’ve already become a dual monitor bigot (I say I won’t ever go back to working at a computer again without 2 monitors), we’ll see if I become a 4 monitor bigot. I doubt it, but it’s cool none the less.
