yeah I know but even with sudo nvidia-settings, the config application doesn’t always write to xorg, OR it overwrites xorg and deletes all my manual edited settings. Menolikethat. So i just have the nvidia settings create the xorg, look at the preview, copy everything in it, paste it in teh real xorg and start editing out what I don’t need.
For tv I was just thinking any random tv really. My brother has this bigass last-gen tv which he got very cheap of the internet. One of those people wanting the very best and once it’s no longer top of the line they dump it, that’s where he got it from. And then my parents tv, and some tv’s my friends own. Most of them have got a laptop, and they either play dvd’s with them, or game on a large screen.
They use windows and mac. It’s just plug and play for them, but that seems to be a nono on linux so far. I have about 3 different xorg files dedicated to trying out different dualscreen modes. The best one gave a black/white seperate X screen where I couln’t run anything in it. The second best stretched my desktop among the two screen and would not let me maximise an application or window in one screen only. When I do autodetect, it ussually detects the tv, but I keep getting a message in the terminal:

EDIT: I get this message when I do sudo nautilus, not after running the nvidia settings btw.
