I am attempting to set up dual monitors. I don’t want my desktop to span across two screens but I want to be able to easily change displays from my monitor to my television for watching movies and then back to monitor when movie is over. I am able to do this on my laptop with an older version of Ubuntu and on my desktop with Windows 7, but cannot figure out how to do it with Opensuse on my desktop. The graphics card in the desktop is an Nvidia 520 (1 dvi, 1 vga).
Any assistance would be much appreciated and thank you for your time again,
I found a way to kind of do it but I would like to know of a way to do it with a couple clicks or some type of key command quickly. My fiancee will never remember how to do all of this and I need to make it much simpler, as it should be.
then type nvidia-settings
I then enable the second monitor and disable the first.
Save x configuration
cntrl+alt+backspace to restart x
Log back in to the computer.
Then I have to do it all over again to get the screen to switch back to my computer monitor from my television.
