It seems hideous
Yes, it is friendly. And I'm not sure what reaction you wanted from people, after making a snotty comment like:
You saying that I should become a programmer?
Shadow7 and I have been trying to help you, but you seem intent on saying it won't work, and don't want to do anything outside of going through a GUI to make it work. Other Linux distros have GUI based Xinerama tools ready to go...loading one of them would take probably less than 30 minutes, and give you what you're looking for. If you don't want to edit the files manually, and Mandriva doesn't have a GUI, what other options would you like?
From a quick Google search:
You have one video card and two monitors. You don't have to scan for different video cards, or set up multiples. Just tell it you have two screens, what the position of the screens are relative to each other, and set the Xinerama option to be "true". That's it.
You've got the power to do what you want, and make it work the way you want it to. We've tried to help you and give you some advice, but you don't seem to want to take any of it, but would rather tell us how bad Linux is, and how horrible all of this is.
We've given you options and information...we can't make you do any of it. Good luck to you.
