Default Re: Need help: Dual head/Single X Session/ One Card

FYI. So it turns out fundamentally it is working correctly. I use an automatic login script that starts several apps including openbox. It appears that openbox is not spanning the two screens, because I get a black background on the second screen. However, I have no problem sending x apps two the second screen. For now this will work for me.

Do I need to explicitly start two openbox instances, one on each display (0.0 and 0.1)? Or is it possible to tell the single instance about the second screen?

As a point of info xscreensaver is spanning both screens.
