Default Re: TwinView incorrectly indicates Xinerama as off when using two cards

netllama,

Thanks again for your reply.

I don't understand why you would suggest it is a limitation of the window manager. If TwinView is indicating that Xinerama is not active, then why would a program continue to ask for Xinerama information?

That is, it seems quite reasonable that a program would be written as follows:

Code:
if (XineramaIsActive(display))
{
   // Xinerama is enabled, so get information
   info = XineramaQueryScreens(display, &num);
   ...
}
else
{
   // Xinerama is not enabled, so can't get information
}
But if TwinView is returning false for XineramaIsActive, then such a program will come to the wrong conclusion. Do you really view this as a bug in the program, and not in the drivers?

Thanks,

Eric
