Display utility doesn't offer to use nvidia-settings with proprietary
drivers installed? (#879528)

879528

With proprietary nvidia drivers, you must use 'nvidia-settings' to do that. Multi-monitor works, but the testcase fails since 'gnome-control-center display' does not offer 'nvidia-settings' as an alternative. Bug #879528 was already reported, so I add this comment: "This bug may be unimportant for desktop systems, but is important for laptops. The first time user must google to solve such easy task."
