I already changed the shortcuts to something different than the up and down, as well as reset all the shotcuts back to the defaults, and I still cant use up and down

ok this should be a simple fix I just dont know how to do it...
I was messing around with my shortkuts for amaroK and i changed the volume up and down to use the global shortcut of the up and down keys. after I did this I noticed when using terminal I could no longer scroll through previos commands using the up and down keys, then when updating livjournal I couldnt use up and down to scroll through text.
in any aplication now the up and down keys dont do anything any more... any one know how to fix it?

its a minor problem, but it gets annoying. When I click on the maximize button and the window takes up the whole screen as it should, but when I click the button again it doesn't restore it back to its original size. its worse now though, because I finally have the twinview working and some windows open anlready maximized making it imposiple to move them to the other screen. I have tried checking the window behavior in the "configure your desktop" and looked for anything relevent in the control center but didnt find anything...
BTW im using mandrake 10.1 if that helps

I've tried both of them individually and the 20 works at 16x12 and the 15 workss at 1024x768 when single monitors but it only works at 800x600 when the twinview is on. I dont get it

you dont need to apologize.

as far ad the dvi thing goes, I have 2 crt and have a dvi->vga converter dongle so they can both be connected

and with the module (driver) I downladed it from nvidias website. After a painstaking proccess of them not working and what not I pinally did so as discussed in this thread --->driver install

by the way thanks for your help thus far, it is as alway apreciated.

This of course is all dependent on actually getting twinview to work on both screens, which I am still a little hazy on if you have or not.

yes i have actually gotten twinview to work but only woth the metamodes set at 800x600, 800x600 I've tries swaping the monitors around on the vga/dvi prots as well and switching the metamodes resolutions to match the change and nothing seems to work. when I do the twinview at any other resolution on either side only the 20" works the 15" gets turned off (well standby mode but...) and i dont understand why. the 15 works just fine all by itself at 1024x768 and even when its set at 1600x1200 it at least get the messed up squigly line one normally gets at an incompatable res. so i dont know what to do...

QUOTE
What you need to do is have the device section look something like this.

If you notice my device section does look alot like your example the only differences are the 2 exra option commands, the order of the commands and the extra metamodes that don't even seam to do any good

Ok, this is getting beyond annoying. It happens mostly on forum type sites like this and livejournal especially during high traffic times and makes it incredibly hard to get help with stuff without having to reboot into windows. if anyone knows how to fix this, I would be oh so greatfull for the info

that what I guessed, the BusID didn't change any behavior, I still only get the twinview with vertical scrolling, however I have that figured out, its because of my virtuals in the "screen" section being set to 1600 1200
even though I know how to stop the scrolling, I dont like the idea of 800x600 on a 20" monitor. any more idea?

How did you install the nvidia module?

what do you mean exactly the drivers?

QUOTE
The only other question I have is, what are the other options you have turned on in your device section?

as far as the Option "DPMS" and Option "RenderAccel" "TRUE" I honestly didnt put those in there with the knowlage of their purpose, however I think (if I remeber corectly) that they where options that were advised by the nvidia website to put in there.

the only difference I see in the example you posted is the busID line is that a major thing that would most likely make the difference in my problem? I'm not having a problem getting it to send video to both monitors, in general, I'm having issues woth the resolution differences. whould the BusID make a difference for that? well I'll try it and see what happens I'll reply again if nothing changes for the good.

try just typing "root" and the user name then no password that shsould get you in as long as you didnt create a root password durring install. then when your in create a username and password to use on a regular bassis, you dont want to use root all the time (for security and safty reasons) especially if your a newbie to linux, it will prevent you from accidently $*#&ing something up. (trust me it happens)

Now that I got my nvidia drivers working, I need to figure out the twinview feature. i did some testing and I'm inly able to get one screen or the other to work, or (and this only works with the 800x600 setting) i got the expanded desktop but the virtual desktop is larger than my monitors' views of it. and I DONT like the scrolling desktop.

im running an NVidia GeForce4 Ti 4600, using the vga and dvi (with analog converter) as my outputs. The problem is getting the 2 different sized monitors to work together well. one is a 20" with 1600x1200 max res and the other is a 15" with 1024x768 max res.

I would prefer to use the 1600x1200 on the 20 and 1024x768 on the 15 like I can in windows XP, but 1024x768 on both is fine

below is a copy of my xorg.conf file which is configures to do the 800x600 on both with the scrolling

Hi I have mandrake 10.1 and i just installed the nvidia drivers and after a week of not being able to use them i finally got them working. however, now when i boot up my computer i have to log in trough textbased and manually enter the comand "modprobe nvidia" and then " startx" every time.
so my question is how do i ad the command modprobe nvidia to the startup prossess and where do I put it so that it's run before it goes into the log-in screen so i still have the graphical log-in?

Well I went back and tried the following (very similar to what i tried before) everything was the same exept making sure that Load "glx" # 3D layer was no longer commented out in the "Module" section of xorg.conf and adding alias char-major-195* nvidia into modprobe.preload.

well this (unlike before) didnt load into x and give me a blank screen, instead it gave me the "no screen detected" error (or something to that effect) and stayed at the command prompt

so off to do more searching......

btw thanks for the help so far...
