nvidia-glx: error opening libnvidia-cfg.so.1 when running nvidia-xconfig --separate-x-screens

If you have an nvidia video card and run Ubuntu and are trying to set up dual-headed monitors using nvidia-xconfig, you MIGHT POSSIBLY get this error:
nvidia-glx: error opening libnvidia-cfg.so.1
.

The solution:

# ln -s /usr/lib/nvidia/libnvidia-cfg.so.173.14.09 /usr/lib/libnvidia-cfg.so.1
