Manjaro. Gnome. Nvidia.

I have two GPUs (ASUS 1070 both).

NVIDIA X Server Settings

Both GPUs and monitors are detected, but I cannot add the second monitor (the smallest, orange on the screenshot) to the X Screen 0. I can only create new X screen 1, but even if I select X Screen 1, I cannot save settings. (second screenshot)

image 2

The current settings cannot be completely applied due to one or more of the following reasons:

  • The location of an X screen has changed
  • The location type of an X screen has changed
  • The color depth of an X screen has changed
  • An X screen has been added or removed.
  • Xinerama is being enabled/disabled.

For all the requested settings to take effect, you must save the configuration to the X config file and restart the X server.

Apply What Is Possible Cancel

I was trying a lot of things, but nothing seems to help. So, I even have a conclusion that it is not possible. I am not experienced in Xorg, etc. at all, so I think there should be some solution.

My xorg.conf
