Default Re: Nvidia + Matrox TripleHead2Go with resolution 5040x1050!

Has anyone seen this one?
http://www.instructables.com/id/How-...tors-in-linux/

It sort of makes sense but I cant get it to work just right.

Fedora 11 / Gnome / 2 Dual cards (GeForce 8600 and GeForce 6200) 4 LCDs

3 days of scouring everything I can find about xorg.conf example configs I have been able to setup only either 2 Twinviews Spanned across 2 monitors each or 4 individual.

I am amazed to find through this thread and others that You cant have 1 desktop across 3 / 4 / ++ screens? I am embarrassed for linux!

Heres my xorg.conf that supports 2 Twinviews, which is really stupid, everytime you open something on the secondary Twinview it opens on the main Twinview, making the second Twinview USELESS
