In the example below, three Screen sections are required for the situation shown in Figure 4.
NVIDIA TwinView — the NVIDIA graphics driver specifies its TwinView configuration as Screen
options within each Screen section that is used. After installing drivers from the HP Linux Installer Kit
CD, configured examples are installed at:
As previously mentioned, recall that NVIDIA TwinView can privately specify the adjacency of two
video outputs as a single Screen definition. Both monitors are treated as one unit by the X server.
• ServerLayout section — The configuration file must contain one or more ServerLayout
Each Screen definition must be specified by its identifier for it to be activated in the final layout. The
is an integer from 0 to N-1 (sequentially) that specifies the associated X screen
number for that display. Note: This is not the same screen number as given internally within a
Device description for multi-ported cards. The Position-information field describes the way multiple
Screens are positioned (RightOf, LeftOf, Above, Below are the most commonly used options).
For example, three displays are placed on a desktop side-by-side. They are defined as screenA,
screenB, and screenC, respectively and have screen-num numbers as 0, 1, and 2. The
ServerLayout relationships for Figure 5 are:
