Screen configs for DFP and TV

Does anyone know how I can get Gnome to recognise my DFP as the primary screen and the TV out as the secondary?

At the moment my login and mounted drives are showing up on my TV.

Here is my xorg.conf.

I have TVout and DFP running but need to get the screens around the other way and am stuck on how.  Wish Nvidia would get a nice version of Nview going with their Linux Driver.   :cry:

Re: Screen configs for DFP and TV

under "ServerLayout" you have the TV as screen 0 and dfp as screen 1

try to change this to be the other way around

(screen 0 dfp
screen 1 tv rightof dfp)

Re: Screen configs for DFP and TV

Thanks for the reply dp but alas, no go on swaping the server config around.  As per you instructions I still get the DFP as the 0.1 display device but with the resolution of the tv.  I have tried a few combinations but no go.

Is there a way I can tell gnome to use the other screen instead?  The screens aside work fine other than the TV being my primary.

Re: Screen configs for DFP and TV

the only other idea i have is trying to see what "gnome-display-properties" says. as i only use dual-screen when using beamer for presentations and i use kde or xfce4 i don't know the details for gnome (respectively i think we are speaking about the log-in screen that is gdm, right?)

good luck

Re: Screen configs for DFP and TV

Yeah,  I might give that a peep.

Nah, doesn't give much choice as to screen output there just allows for res and refresh adjustment.  C'est la vie
