Ok so i installed Zenwalk Linux with just enough knowledge to use bash and install packages thinking that there may be a few bumps on the way but i would solve them eventually. I was pretty much right bar one problem:
I have a 13" CRT piece of crap that cost me a whole $2. If my multi monitor setup hadn't worked perfectly on windows then i would blame it on my bullshit second monitor.
It's plugged into my digital port on my GT6600 using a digital to anologue converter, and when i start up Xwindows it looks something like this:
What I ideally want is a 2048x768 desktop spread over two monitors like i have on windows.
I've tried every multi display tutorial google can find but every single one has either miserably failed or has been way way too complicated for me to understand. But having made many mistakes and changes to xorg.conf i'm back at square one with my original xorg.conf.
