Yup I get segfault when running it as well.

Does anyone have problems with disper giving a SegFault?

This is... quite sexy O.O

Yeah, I can also confirm that with 302.17, Nvidia driver finally works with xrandr now.

So I guess we no longer need disper?

I haven't upgraded to 302.17 yet, but it seems that this versions drops TwinView in favor of Xinerama. So you can probably just use xrandr, or graphical tools such as arandr.

Disper is working again for me. (see previous problem)
Don't need it anymore, though. Switched to nouveau.

# 'disper -e -d auto'
could not switch to metamode 52: resolution not found

Seems like nvidia-302.17 broke disper. Are there any workarounds?

'disper -c' is not working.

Disper 0.3.0-1
Nvidia 290.10
Kernel 3.2.1-2

Different problem here.
Disper doesn't detect ANY external monitors.
Also, it somehow thinks that the optimal resolution for my LVDS display is 320x175 while still recognizing the native 1440x900.

On the other hand, nvidia-settings recognizes external displays without a hitch. Well, apart from being the user-unfriendly mess that it is (exactly why I want to use disper)

disper 0.3.0 (from this package)
kernel 3.2.1-1
nvidia driver 290.10

Graphics card: nVidia geForce 8600m gt

As with other people here, everything worked fine with Ubuntu (although I can't remember which versions of driver, kernel and disper I used back then. It's been a while).

I already tried adding the Monitor section, which changed nothing.
