I have a Lenovo W530, with Optimus. I am running 14.04, using the nvidia driver.

I can get to the point where Awesome boots, and xrandr can see all of my screens. My setup uses this: http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/319.12/README/randr14.html

When I run an xrandr command to set up my screens as I wish:

xrandr --output LVDS-1-0 --auto --output DP-0  --mode 1680x1050 --right-of LVDS-1-0 --verbose

I get the following:

crtc 0:    1680x1050   60.0 +1920+0 "DP-0"
crtc 4:    1920x1080   60.0 +0+0 "LVDS-1-0"

Which looks ok. I think that means that DP-0 is given the resolution 1680x1050 and offset by 1920px, which is what I want.

However, in the Xorg.0.log file, the following is appended:

[   121.934] (II) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Display (BenQ BL2201 (DFP-1)) does not support NVIDIA 3D

And the secondary screen is set to 3600x1080 resolution, with no offset, so a weird sort of clone.
