Comment 38 for bug 92599

  • unnamed Edit (1.7 KiB, text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1)

As Nat mentioned, this *is* a bug. It's a bug with the NVIDIA drivers,
though, not Ubuntu. Therefore, it should stick around until NVIDIA fixes it
with the restricted, closed source drivers. Otherwise, we should add a *
feature* that automatically disables TwinView in the x config file by
default (ie: a GUI setting in Ubuntu). Then for those few using TwinView,
then can enable it and everyone is happy.
