Yeah, I made a point of xinerama and KDE just to burr Kewp a little if he reads this as he hates both of them with a passion and is the only other dual monitor junkie I know of on this board. He also made me realise just how easy this was to throw together. We have 15 dual monitor rigs at work now, a couple of Dell Xeon 2.4's and 11 PowerMac G4 dual 1Ghz, all with some absurd ammount of RAM, like a Gig a piece.

So I spend about 1/4 of my time at home infront of my xinerama craziness, then about 1/2 my time at work behind some dual 19-inch flat panel Dells or the dual 17-inch Macs and have to go back to my cubicle and my 17-inch trinitron running win98 and it feels like I'm computing on a palm pilot.

nutty,

Finegan

17 inch Palm, I bet a real palm must seem like a frickin watch face to you then. If monitors weren't amazingly expensive (obviously due to their weight) I would have to give this a go soon, but I guess I will do it later rather than sooner.

Nice shots btw, even though they are KDE

Oh, almost forgot to ask, how did you do a screen capture of both monitors on one image? Or did you just "paste" the 2 images together?

Cool

Its a GIMP feature for capture, as far as X is concerned, they're one space anyway, the cut line in that image was just about at the four set of minimized tabs, the monitor on the left is a 19-inch, the one on the right a 17-inch.

In the Gimp Under File, Acquire, ScreenShot, then... er, just a second, uh this.

About monitors too, since they're of course the one chunk of hardware that really doesn't get left in the archaic dustpile after 5 years or so, a used one really is pretty cheap if you live in a larger town. On ebay they're not worth their weight to ship of course... $50 is the ballpark these days for a good not-smoked 17-inch picked up locally. Poke around man, there are good deals out there.

Luck,

Finegan

So the line is completely seamless, because I can see nothing on the screenshot, the "whole screen" option from here shows must get the seamless shot, that's really nice.

I will go into "town" sometime next week and pick a paper and see what I can find. Seattle is about 2 hours from here though so it kind of sucks to go there too often. If things look good though, I will be doing that sometime sooner, rather than later

Gimp rules btw!

Hey man, that is very nice! Very "sleek". One of the best Gnome shots I've ever seen, good job!

You see, it is Enlightenment on the top of GNOME, honestly I don't like such convention, it is either GNOME or Enlightenment. I would go for enlightenment. It is much cleaner and purer

Nice one's both of you.

Keith, I don't know if you are aware, or even interested, but you can start gkrellm in KDE with a program called kstart, and make it so it doesn't appear in your "taskbar" on kicker. The info is, I believe, on GKrellm's website in the FAQ.

Cool

Looks really good, I like E, and if you aren't concerned with tons-o-speed (like me, flux baby yeah!) then that works out real well to run it ontop of GNOME. Nice work...

Cool

Hi! That looks really good, but how did you get tabs in konqueror, or is that something new (KDE-3.1-beta1)?

Thanks
