Saving settings - Dual Monitor


thanks to this forum, it was very easy to setup "dual monitors" but for some reason, everytime I reboot the computer all the icons "jump" back to the primary monitor, with the exception of two icons that I created after the "dual" monitors were setup. how can I save the position of the icons?

any help would be greatly appreciated.

thank you

this is down to your window manager, not X itself or anything specifically related to dual heads. Maybe you're just not exiting your desktop environment correctly?

I always shut it down using the button and once off the gui, init 0 to turn it off. What am I missing?

well you can start by telling us what window manager you're acutally using... do you have any idea just how many dozens of window managers exist?

If its being a bitch about the ones that were created before you started using dual heads, just delete all the ones that were on there before you started using the dual heads, then recreate them now that your using dual heads (make sure to write down what the links and stuff point to before you delete them though).
