Ubuntu 10.04 with Nvidia restricted drivers running Nvidia 9600 GT with dual DVI monitors (22" and 23"). In the default metamode (1), both monitors are active. I've added a second metamode via
nvidia-settings (version 1.0) in which only the 23" monitor is enabled. I can switch between metamodes using the
nvidia-settings GUI. Is there a way to do this from the command line? I've read about Disper on this site but have not tried it as I hoped this functionality was available via
nvidia-settings? I can find nothing helpful in the man page though.
Edit: After switching between the two metamodes in
nvidia-settings GUI, I noticed a line in the GUI reading "Switched to MetaMode AxB.", where A and B specified the new resolution. So switching metamodes is simply a resolution change? I've read elsewhere that what I want to do can be achieved with
xrandr. Would this be correct, because it seems all I need to do is change the resolution? In metamode 1, the resolution is 3600x1080; in metamode 2 it's 1920x1080.
