Duplicates on gnome panel


Alright, I'm doing an all-out assualt on trying to get this issue fixed.
Posting on every forum possible and reading like crazy.

The issue is pretty simple. I have duplicate desktops and/or entries on my gnome panel(top, black bar).

As you can see the duplicates increase and the screen space diminishes after each subsequent restart, until my primary desktop is left a black screen.

I did a fresh install of Debian Wheezy. Put in new drivers via the description provided here:

https://wiki.debian.org/ATIProprietary

I ran the follwoing to generate a xorg for multiple video cards:

aticonfig --adapter=all --initial


After doing both steps above and a restart this is what I'm left with:

Dear Ac1d:
Quote:
Section "Device"
Identifier "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"

BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "aticonfig-Device[1]-0"
Driver "fglrx"
BusID "PCI:2:0:0"
EndSection


Are you sure you can support the two devices with the same "fglrx" driver?

I am not too expert on this.

Quote:
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "aticonfig Layout"
Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
Screen "aticonfig-Screen[1]-0" RightOf "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
EndSection
Why are the two "Screen" subsections format different?
I donīt know what the parameters mean, but I suppose "RightOf" means some kind of splitting.

Regards.

Alejandro

Didn't realize that you could designate multiple drivers at the same time. Thought it was a one shot deal.
