Default Re: Rotation of only one screen (with TwinView)

Without Twinview on a GeForce 7600 GT, I have one of two screens rotated. Here are the pertinent sections of my xorg.conf (special items bolded), also note the resolution of the rotated screen is x/y flipped (900x1440):
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Default Layout"
    Screen      0  "Screen0" 
    Screen      1  "Screen1" leftOf "Screen0"
    InputDevice    "Generic Keyboard"
    InputDevice    "Configured Mouse"
    Option         "Xinerama" "0"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Monitor1"
    VendorName     "Unknown"
    ModelName      "HSD HW191D"
    HorizSync       30.0 - 80.0
    VertRefresh     49.0 - 75.0
    Option         "RandRRotation" "on"
    Option         "Rotate" "CW"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Monitor0"
    VendorName     "Unknown"
    ModelName      "HSD HW191D"
    HorizSync       30.0 - 80.0
    VertRefresh     49.0 - 75.0
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen1"
    Device         "Device1"
    Monitor        "Monitor1"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "TwinView" "0"
    Option         "metamodes" "DFP-1: 900x1440 +900+0"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
    EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Device0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "TwinView" "0"
    Option         "metamodes" "DFP-0: 1440x900 +0+0"
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
    EndSubSection
EndSection
  • The tall (rotated) screen is excellent for viewing PDFs and long web pages.
  • Dragging from one screen to the other is not possible, fine by me.
  • Trying to open a link in one screen while Firefox is in the other screen is not possible (error results). It would be nice if that worked.
