Xinerama,Howto Tvtime on right screen & gdm(loginManager)on left screen,toEnjoy Tv!


Hi

I would like to do computer while watching TV, with having a process running on the right screen. that's a bit tricky but that is possible.
I would like that the tvtime process is always running, from boot, on the right screen

Any ideas, or link to how to, wiki ?
thanks

Here is my present xorg.conf, xinerama config:
