I’m using Ubuntu 12.04 with 3 monitors hooked up to it using BaseMosaic. This worked fine. I was on NVIDIA drivers 310 using two GTX 560Ti graphics cards with a SLI connector.
A few days ago I tried hooking up a 4th monitor, configured the xorg.conf file, but still only 3 monitors popped up. Then I tried installing the v325 drivers after uninstalling all the ubuntu nvidia packages. This only worked for 2 monitors, because I couldn’t get BaseMosaic working anymore, even not from the NVIDIA GUI after enabling advanced options.
After a little bit of research I found that v310 only supports up to 3 monitors in BaseMosaic, the same is valid for v325.
In v295, however, it is possible to use 4 monitors using BaseMosaic. Why did the BaseMosaic supoort get limited to only 3 monitors? Currently I downgraded my drivers to v295 to be able to use 4 monitor without enabling Xinerama (I like the 3d support).
Will it be able in future drivers to support more then 3 monitors again using BaseMosaic?
Thnx in advance,
