I just installed OS LEAP on my main workstation. Everything works well but after installing nvidia drivers I had a strange Issue.
When I’m doing relog or reboot, all screen positioning is lost and It looks like all screens are stacked on first monitor and I seeing only one mirrored display on second monitor.
I tried to use nvidia-settings to save settings but It’s using obsolete xorg.conf . (I have an obsolete GPU Nvidia 7900GS so drivers are so old)
It’s so annoying to changing settings every restart
I don’t know nothing about this problem with nouveau drivers - first step what I did is installing NV drivers.
How to fix it ?
NV and nouveau are two different drivers don’t confuse them and don’t remove either. If nouveau works simply remove the proprietary package you installed there are several depending on what flavour you used but all have nvidia in there names. DO NOT remove any others that may be parts of other drivers only those with nvidia in the package name.
I have a similar issue, using nvidia gfx660 and leap 42.1. However, the issue doesn’t occur every time, just sometimes when I boot suddenly the main desktop is duplicated (mirrored) on both monitors, so I need to go to Configure Desktop -> Display and Monitor -> Display Configuration and there I see like one screen on top of the other, need to pull the top one to the right side and apply, then everything is normal until the issue occurs again some time.
I had it with different drivers and I’ve got the feeling that it has improved since setting display-config under the “nvidia x server settings”, it happens less frequent.
Sometimes only the left and right display change position, so you have to move the mouse cursor left to reach the display on the right side.
Yeah, I can confirm that. I do suspend my PC quite frequently and it never happened after suspending it, only after power off. Will give it a try with log in/out when it happens next time, though still annoying…
Nope, didn’t resolve the issue, it’s still happening. Whats even worse, I’ve recently added a panel to my second monitor and when the issue happens the panel is also gone, so I have to setup a new one…
