However, I can't run application as full screen if, I run application as full screen. One part of application was showing on external monitor, one was showing on default laptop monitor. my xorg conf file is ;

    EndSubSection
EndSection

and xrandr -q output ;

How can solve this problem ? Because, I can't run any application (browser, ...) as full screen. screenshot :

Try to configure your screens with the AMD configuration utility, should be much more handy than using xorg.conf.

You can pin it down a bit closer with options in xorg.conf.d like
PreferredMode, Virtual, Reft and Right (or top and bottom). I also would give the monitors different names and stuff.If you have a left & right, it's messy to have greatly different picture picture heights. Imagine you had one monitor on 800x600 and another on 1920x1200, what virtual screen size should X set?

I have a laptop on 1280x800and a monitor on 1440x900. I use a PreferredMode, and I get fullscreen on both. There was a bit of strangeness where X evidently ran the 1440x900 and also when the 1440x900 virtual size was set and the laptop was missing the right edge of the screen, but it went away. Xrandr is talking to me about 1024x768 (4:3 ratio) when my screens are 16:9 ratio, so I don't believe that, but otherwise it appears I have 1440x900 in the monitor and 1280x800 on the laptop screen.
