Hi,

I have zero experience with Nvidia, but I use some devices with
multiple video outputs - board with VGA + DVI or VGA + HDMI, mostly
Intel video. In my case crucial was right use of xrandr, example:

xrandr --output DVI-D-1 --auto
xrandr --output VGA-1 --auto
xrandr --output VGA-1 --left-of DVI-D-1

While this could not be answer for you, I'd recommend running

xrandr

with no option, just to see if it offers any usefull info.

In any case, I'd like to know how you are using XFCE in multi-monitor
scenario.

Regards,
Milan
