Ugh ! Looks like moving to FC12 wasn't nearly as smooth as moving to other versions.. Ah well, the price of cutting edge...

I will give this a shot tomorrow. Thanks for the info.

Well, it's not perfect by any means, but I have it working now.. Seems that RightOf is the only thing that works. Above and Below also produced the cursor problem.

I can't wait until this is fixed.. Having to move right and left to get to monitors above one another is a tad annoying.. :P

Thanks for the help!

And here's the upstream bug for the positioning information. According to the bug report, Xinerama has to be enabled as well. Supposedly disabling it will make things work properly, though I haven't given this a try.

There's a patch for the cursor issue here (http://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=24986). Make sure you also apply this patch (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=142656) if you have the VGA arbiter turned on.
