Default Re: 4 Monitors dual Twinview problems

Hello,

So using one of your examples I am further towards my goal just not there yet.

So I now have two twinview setups of 2 monitors each a separate X session. Part one achieved. I can have kde4.2 on the bottom monitors and until they sort out having two kde sessions I can start icewm on the top two using the command.

DISPLAY=:0.1 icewm &

It looks like the problems was that I have to call the crt attached to gpu0 crt-1 and the crt attached to gpu1 crt-0. If I don't screen0 doesn't load. I anyone can explain that I would be interested.

Unfortunately when I maximize any window it goes right across which ever twinview screen it is on and doesn't respect either TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder or TwinViewXineramaInfoOverride. I have posted my revised xorg.conf.

Thanks for the help so far!
