Dual Monitors Problem
I'm working on setting up a dual display configuration for my Linux desktop. I've got the XF86 Config file working, both monitors fire up. The problem is that the second monitor just stays at the default X screen, the black and white one with the X cursor. The other monitor displays the Gnome desktop. I can move the mouse to and from each screen, but I don't know how to get a desktop working on that second screen. I know that you can use Xinerama to spread the desktop across both monitors, but from other threads I've read it doesn't sound like that works very well. What I would like to do is have two separate desktops, one for each screen. I'm new at this so maybe I'm going about it the wrong way. Any help would be appreciated.
