Default XComposite triple Head

Hi

After looking for hours I wonder if it is possible to get XComposite extension running in any way with three monitors?

If not I can finally stop looking for a solution and live with it.

cheers Nelio

I assume you are using two video cards for the three LCDs.

In this case, composite and xinerama are sort of incompatible,
especially, you can't run Compiz on such a setup - there does
exist a software solution based on Xglx, but this is deprecated.

Depending on the LCD resolution, a hardware solution might
work good enough for you - please check the following links:
