    Cant start Gnome3 with dual displays (nvidia)

    Hello
    I have a fresh install of F16 x64 and I have disabled the Nouveau driver and installed the OEM Nvidia quadro driver from the nvidia site: (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-290.10.run) (quadro 3800)

    I use the specific version of NVIDIA drivers for my graphics applications rather than using rpmfusion for example

    The driver installs fine, and it boots back into gnome fine after a reboot - but only in single screen mode.


    If I change the nvidia-settings to have twinview and write out my new xorg.conf file (I never merge, I always backup then overwrite) & reboot, then it boots back to the gnome login screen, then after login I just get 2 background images & a mouse pointer, no gnome, no menus, nothing.

    I have attached my twinview xorg.conf file just to see if anyone can spot any glaring issue as well as the working xorg.conf file

    thanks
    Simon

    As far as I am aware Twinview and GNOME3 do not play nice together.

    agghh

    I didnt mean twin view (because I have different sized monitors) I meant: Separate X Screen

    Sorry about that
