    Question How to sep up monitor as primary with dual setup?

    I have Suse 11.0 64bit setup with dual screen. A 17" VGA LCD and a 17" DVI LCD running with a 7600GT card.

    By default the nvidia driver picks my vga screen as the primary screen but I want the DVI screen to be the primary one (the P17-2 DFP screen). nvidia settings.

    In the past I solved it with the next line in xorg.conf

    Option TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder DFP

    But with suse 11.0 the auto made xorg.conf uses SaXDual command a lot, something I never saw before with Ubuntu auto made xorg.conf.

    I tried to include the TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder command but it resulted in a nice command line after rebooting x.

    How can I make my DVI screen be the primary screen?
