# Can I configure one monitor landscape and one in picture mode at the same time?

At the minute I am running Kubuntu Lucid LTS on my desktop computer and also have some reasonably downtime and also was taking into consideration updating to Natty.

My largest problem (customarily) is whether I will certainly have the ability to utilize my video clip card in the means its set up currently, ideally without hrs of arrangement discomfort. The discomfort mostly originates from me having 2 displays and also a solitary continual desktop computer. One display is made use of in landscape and also an additional in image setting (revolved 90 levels clockwise), both having various resolutions.

I bear in mind investing hrs of obtaining it set up when mounting Lucid initially as I needed to fine-tune xorg.conf settings by hand loads of times, randr really did not function, etc, etc I ultimately wound up making use of shut resource vehicle driver as it was the just one having the ability to attain the arrangement. I additionally remember my coworker mounting Maverick on the next week after the release ; he could not get it collaborating with shut resource nvidia vehicle drivers due to the fact that more recent Xorg libs weren't sustained (so he needed to make use of Xorg libs from Lucid) and also the open resource vehicle drivers could not do the job. Royal discomfort tales similar to this have actually left me with a really reduced assumptions for Linux on desktop computer as a whole and also new Ubuntu launches specifically.

I directly uncommitted which vehicle drivers to make use of as long as I can get the display arrangement working (no demand for any kind of 3D velocity, it is my functioning equipment). I have actually invested time considering forums/help/AskUbuntu, yet I can not locate any kind of suitable web page validating whether Natty can attain my wanted arrangement as the noise/information price is expensive.

My video clip card is (quote from lspci -vvv):

02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G86 [Quadro NVS 290] (rev a1)

So can any person suggestions whether nVidia twin - display, revolved - screen, continual - desktop computer can be attained in Natty/Kubuntu?
