2 WMs at the same time on 2 different screens possible?
I have absolutely no experience regarding dual screen on X so far.
So I just have a few theoretical or hypothetical questions - the main one was already mentioned in thread title:
1) Are multiple window managers working at the same time on multiple screens possible or not?
1.a) If yes - great! Are they compatible? Meaning: Is it possible to issue a command like 'firefox' in one and then get Firefox started in the other or vice versa? Is it possible to move windows from one to another?
1.b) If no: Then there are virtual desktops. Are they individual for each screen or does switching virtual desktop 1 to 2 mean a switch for both screens at the same time?
2) Fullscreen apps on windows normally lock on the primary screen. Is there a definition for where to lock fullscreen apps in X desktops?
3) Is it even possible to run X only on one screen and leave the other completely without X but ttys with framebuffer support running? (And maybe a shortcut like shift+alt+f1 etc. to switch to that screen?)
Thanks in advance!
