Can only wallpaper 1 of my monitors


I have an odd problem I havn't been able to google or find searching on here.

I can't seem to apply a background wallpaper to the left screen. The right screen let's me do as I please to the background, but the left has decided that it really wants to be blue, and there is nothing I can tell it to cheer it up.

Running Slack 10.2 with much of the Slack-current packages installed, kde 3.5.1, Xorg 6.9, Kernel-2.6.16.1 on an ATi x800xt with the latest drivers(8.23.7).

And my xorg.conf(which is an edited conf I got from someone else after misconfiguring my monitors and getting annoyed):

Hopefully I gave enough information to help. Thanks for your time.

If anyone was curious, I had to set the wallpaper via command line. I used:

dcop kdesktop KBackgroundIface setWallpaper /path/to/wallpaper 6

6 for centered scaled.
