NVidia 3D Vision Problems in Linux, screen only showing vertical lines when I change to Option Stere

Hey there,

So I just installed a new Quadro K4200 on my Ubuntu 14.04 workstation and was trying to get my 3D vision Kit 2 to work. When the window manager boots all you can see are vertical green, black and yellow lines (like a giant barcode).

I am using Xubuntu (Xfce window manager) with no composite extensions with NVidia driver 352.63.

I have attached a screen shot of what comes up on my monitor and also the Nvidia bug report which has all the X.org outputs.

And my Xorg.conf

I’m running it straight out of the DVI (dual link) port of the card to an ASUS VG248QE monitor. Just so you know, the monitor works fine when i change the stereo option in the xorg.conf file back to 0. It also doesn’t seem to change if I use the Displayport 1.2 instead of the DVI, the only thing that changes is the pattern on the screen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So I have more to add…

I have tried multiple linux distributions (Xubuntu 15.10, Federa Core 23(LXDE) and Ubuntu 14.04 (with XCfe window manager) and still have the same problem.
