Multi monitor problem w/nVidia 7300 card
I have a dual monitor setup with a nVidia 7300 card. I'm not sure exactly when this started to happen, but it's happened for a couple of years at least. when I'm in one or the other monitor the cursor will sometimes "stick" in that monitor and refuse to go to the other monitor. it'll just 'wrap around' as when I go to the right part of the monitor, it'll then jump to the left side, and vice versa.
Also once in awile, if I'm in one monitor, the cursor will be taken away and put on the other monitor.
I'm just now starting to see a few patterns on what's happening. It's worse if I have VCL playing in the left monitor, (my secondary), and I've got a program maximized in the right (primary) monitor. That's when it'll 'stick' on the right monitor. After I roll up the program or minimize it, then it'll free the mouse. But it's not instant. After it's freed, it still doesn't work exactly. If you click on any program on the left monitor, then you have to move back and forth before the mouse will work on the left monitor.
The second problem I'm having happens only on the secondary monitor. At times the precision is WAY off. For example, if I try to put the mouse right on an icon, and click it. It won't work. But if I move the mouse over to the right or left, suddenly the pop-up comment box pops up, the icon is highlighted and clicking will run the program. It can be off as much as 100 pixels!
I've seen these problems in all sorts of GUIs; XFCE, DXCE, KDE 3.x (I never tried it in KDE 4.x since it was nearly unusable) and Gnome. Right now I've only see this on Ubuntu 8.04.01, to 9.10 (I never went past 9.10), and at first I thought it was X since all GUIs had problems. But someone now says that nVidia's driver might be to blame. If you can tell me what command to type in at the terminal, I can supply the current video driver's version.
