Originally posted on wrong forum, chat support told me to try here.
I’m currently setting up a dual booted system with Windows 10 / Linux (Debian). I have a multiple GPU system, a GTX1660Ti and a GTX760. The 1660 runs two monitors and the 760 runs a monitor and TV.
After installing Linux and installing the nvidia-driver I found that in the default desktop settings only two monitors where being shown. When looking in the nvidia-settings application I can see both cards and all monitors.
I’ve been trying to use the x configuration dialog to get a setup that works but at best I end up with the 1660 (and monitors) showing the desktop and the 760 monitors only showing a cursor (a cross).
I’ve tried Xinerama (forgive spelling) but this ends up with a black screen across all displays.
Looking to google/reddit/rest of the internet it’s filled with frustrated people and the gist of most is “give up this is a nightmare”.
Can you provide me a definitive yes/no answer, can Linux (Debian or any flavour) support the setup I’ve described above? I’ve already spent close to a week investigating this, multiple reinstallations / configurations and I’ve been left pulling my hair out (which i have very little left).
If there is a solution, I’d be very grateful if you could provide a process/procedure?
If not are there plans to address this in future, would seem like a strange oversight. I’m very keen to ditch Windows and move to Linux (sick of the direction Windows is going in ala Fisherprice OS / copying Apple). With Steam now putting effort into making games work in Linux I’m keen to give it a try but have run into this problem at the first hurdle.
EDIT: From what I’ve read Xorg/X11 may never support this but the upcoming “Wayland” display manager should? Also noticed that it’s requested i supply logs, however my current install of Debian is bricked after the latest attempt to get things working. If requested/needed I’ll supply logs once i’ve reinstalled/retested.
Hoping for a solution,
