As I said earlier today, the installfest to get rid of Windows and move to an operating system is under way.
I eventually got three monitors running at the same time after much playing with xorg.conf, but ended up with one screen doing it’s own thing, and a separate desktop spanning the other screens. Not quite what I wanted, since I want to be able to drag and drop between the screens.
In the end, I’ve given up on the idea of getting the three screens working together, and have gone for the following really basic xorg.conf file which gives me a desktop spanning two of the three screens – something I can live with!
Section "Screen" Identifier "Configured Screen Device" Device "Configured Video Device" SubSection "Display" Virtual 2560 1024 EndSubSection EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" EndSection
I’m sure that there must be a way to get one big desktop across the three screens, but for now, I’ll settle for the two working properly!
