#66 Zalman 3D monitor


I have bought a Zalman 3D monitor, being the recommended option for 3D viewing in pymol (http://pymol.org/zalman/). It works in windows vista, but in ubuntu I only get duplicate lines that are ugly and do not give a 3D effect. I use the nvidia driver version 185. I have edited xorg.conf and set the stereo mode to 7 and disabled composite. Could anyone please help me out getting it to work in linux?

    PyMOL follow up with nVidia and/or Zalman directly regarding how to configure Linux OpenGL drivers for the Zalman (that's beyond the scope of this project). Note that PyMOL doesn't require any special drivers to work with the Zalman -- simply launch as: pymol -St 6

    Launching with -S t 6 was the first thing I tried, but it only works in windows for me. In linux I think that I can see that the horizontal lines get fewer and thicker, but they never melt into one 3D picture. I get the same effect for schrodinger interlaced 3D, which I have only tested in linux. I wrote the comment to see if anyon else had experienced the same problem or could maybe guess the solution. There is not much on google on this.

    Some lines also looked like dashed lines when stereo is activated.

    After updating my nvidia-driver to the latest beta my Zalman monitor now generates 3D as should.
