    Default How use two monitors with openSUSE?


    What would i need (hardware and software) to run openSUSE on two
    monitors at once? And what are my options? For example, can i split the
    same desktop screen into two parts? Or can i put a different desktop
    onto each monitor?

    Hi
    I only run twinview which is the screen across two monitors
    (Viewsonic VX1940w) giving me a desktop size of 3360x1050 using a
    EN8600GTS (silent) the card has 2xDVI out rather than the other one I
    use to use which was a EN6600GT (Silent) which had 1xVGA and 1xDVI.

    I recommend trying to use the monitors at same resolution if you can as
    it's less of a configuration issue.

    Just make sure the card you use can support the resolution of your
    monitor.
