# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"
Option "XkbRules" "xfree86"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
# If the normal CorePointer mouse is not a USB mouse then
# this input device can be used in AlwaysCore mode to let you
# also use USB mice at the same time.
Option "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
did you ever manage to get this problem sorted?
as it is the exact problem i was having for the past year or so....and could never sort it.
I managed to get dual display...but it was like a wierd clone/dual setup...each screen would show the same thing however you could mouse between the screens
No, I never solved it. I had the same thing going, where there were two screens, and I could move the mouse from one to the other, but both had a "start menu" and windows couldn't move from one to the other....
I went back to Windoze, and now I am running 4 monitors.
i know that after you have the latest ATi drivers installed, it'll add an ATi configuration program. I have SuSe 9.1, and it added it under the System menu, I believe. There's a tab to assist in setting up dual monitors... I hope this helps!
