  • screen number in catalyst control center

    Hi,
    i have a 4870 ati, a crt monitor(primary) and a hdmi tv.
    I installed the latest ati driver (9.11) from the ati site.
    The problem is that when i connect the hdmi tv it becomes primary in ubuntu and i cannot set the dual desktop mode properly.
    My intention is to have my usual destop on the crt while on the other screen starts xbmc.
    But i can't do this unless i figure out how to define my crt ad n.1 instead of n.2
    If i use xrand with
    xrandr --output CRT1 --primary
    xrandr --output DFP1 --auto --left-of CRT1
    i temporarily (til reboot)have an extended desktop which is no good for my intention.

    So basically the question is: how can i set my crt as primary in catalyst control center?

    Thanks in advance

    Try to plug the CRT in the other port. Worked for me. I had the same problem with TV-Out.

          hi, sorry for the delay.
          i solved!

          in the section

          Code:
          Section "ServerLayout"
          	Identifier     "aticonfig Layout"
          	Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
          	Screen         "amdcccle-Screen[1]-1" 1600 0
          EndSection
          i changed the screen number to

          Code:
          Section "ServerLayout"
          	Identifier     "aticonfig Layout"
          	Screen      1  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
          	Screen      0  "amdcccle-Screen[1]-1" 1600 0
          EndSection
          and then removed any other screen definition under the device sections.

          let me know if it works for you
