Default Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

+1 for rotating one screen with twinview, nvidia.

It's important enough that I'll switch to ATI for my next video card if they support it.

I need only one rotated screen too. Can't imagine there would be that much VooDoo to get it.
Only problem I'd see here how the RGB/BGR/VRGB/VBGR settings from the DE are handled differently for each screen. Theoretically they should still be the same?

Hello,

Since there still is no answer, I am not waiting anymore nVidia to fix this stupid problem.

Just want to know what brand of video cards will offer this simple feature supported under linux ?

Many thanks !

Like, because composite extension must be disabled? OepnGL works, I can drag windows from one screen to another, and everything works. It just one big desktop. Exactly the same as with two horizontal LCDs and twinview.

Excellent, this solution works for me. I adapted it to work on my Dell 3007FP and 2001FP.

I've recently bought Nvidia graphic card and I can't manage to set dual head with one screen 90 degree rotated and Compiz Fusion (Ubuntu Unity) working together.

TwinView still does not have option for rotating single screen.
It has been 5 years since this thread started. What's so hard in adding additional parameter in metamode for screen rotation? Come on...

Xinerama does not work with Compiz so it's not an option.
I understand it's maybe not Nvidia fault but Compiz or Xinerame, not sure.
The point is that config I want to achieve worked for me couple of days ago with ATI card and it was possible to set everything using ATI Catalyst Control Center included with proprietary driver.
If I find no solution till end of the week I'm giving back to the shop the brand new and shiny GTX 560 Ti and switching back to Radeon. That's pity because I like how the new Nvidia card works: silent, quite cool, good fps in games under windows, etc. However new ATI radeon probably won't be worse and it can be configured under linux as I need.

I'm quite disappointed as there was always a rumor that Nvidia has better linux support than ATI. I believe this is not true anymore.

The problem it does not work with Compiz (Unity). What do you mean by composite extension disabled. How can I check if it's already disabled?

Here is the screen shot how my desktop looks like after trying xinerama. Arrows show area of each monitor.
Left one is totally black and displays nothing. I can navigate with mouse over it though.
Right one has some strange collision of what should be displayed separate on both monitors.
If I try click mouse it clicks like 1280 pixels -> from the seen pointer position.

Here is the config I have used for capture it:

Default Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

I found a partial solution for this: using the nouveau driver with gallium 3d drivers

This solution allows to choose a rotation for each of the connected screens.
The only problem with this solution is that the 3d Gallium driver is still very slow and this combined with my slow graphic card leads to almost unusable results (I currently own a nVidia Corporation GT200 [GeForce 210] (rev a2) passively cooled VGA)

I don't think adding this possibility to the linux binary driver should be too much of a problem, and if it is I'd like to know for sure

Default Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

Thanks for info.

Because of this no-go rotation lack I replaced nV card for ATI's one despite I liked more the GTX 560 Ti overall performance and usage feeling.

Recently nVidia joined Linux Foundation. Well, I'm still looking forward the option of rotating single screen to be added... Maybe I'll change the card again then.

Default Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

I will join the crowd and ask if there is any progress on letting twinview rotate one of the two displays. I do not wish to use Xinerama, as it doesn't support compositing.

One: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=196187

Two: Were you living under a rock the past few months? The driver got xrandr1.2 support starting with the 300 series.
