PostPosted: Mon 13 Sep 2010, 10:51    Post subject:  Dual Monitor Nvidia
Subject description: Suggestions for a proper setup.
 

Hello, I am running lucid puppy 5.11. I have a Nvidia G-force fx 5200 card. I have a dual display, a crt and a 42" tv for movies and hulu in the living room. So I have installed the Nvidia driver and setup my xorg for dual display. My only goal for the dual display is to play full screen video on the tv while using puppy on the crt. I have accomplished this by setting each display to use a separate x screen, and enabled xinerama. This is working well, with a couple issues

#1 Some apps and system messages display on the tv instead of the crt

#2 When watching video, the monitors power off after about 10 min of inactivity


What can I do to better this setup?
Thank You
