Multiple monitors without EDID on Linux

I’ve been wanting to make this work for a long time, but the two times I tried to configure it I gave up because I just didn’t know what else to do. This time I sat down and didn’t get up until it worked. I worked on the xorg.conf several times before, so I know my way around it. It was still quite a puzzle for me to get working.

Multiple Monitors with a Screen each, using one Device, put together in a ServerLayout.

FIX: You are missing 32-bit libs: libGL.so.1

So I’ve been getting an error when trying to start Steam. Luckily, I know how to use a search engine and quickly found a promising post by frankster. This did not fix my problems - I had to run this line to get Steam to work on my laptop: sudo apt-get install libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386 Works like a charm. :)

Why the NVIDIA graphics driver should be available in repositories

It’s not that big of a deal, but would it really be that big of a problem to deliver a proper .deb package for the driver installation? I had to let the Nvidia installer disable my Nouveau driver, I had to manually stop LightDM and I also had to correct the /usr/bin/gcc link, since Nvidia apparently doesn’t care about my CC environment variable. sudo service lightdm stop sudo rm /usr/bin/gcc sudo ln -s /usr/bin/gcc-4.6 /usr/bin/gcc What’s up with that?
