Xorg: Support for multihead still exists?


Hi!

I'm wondering if support for multihead (multiple KVMs connected to a single computer) still exists in Xorg.

Thanks in advance for any information you could provide.

Yes. Same/Same picture format, or left/right. Perhaps even top/bottom.

Configuring this, as they used to say on kid's toys, "Can provide endless hours of fun & amusement." Enjoy.

I went into the IRC channel of xorg and they told me what I want is called "multiseat"... and yes, it can be done. I'll try to have some fun with it.

"Multiseat" and "Multihead" are different.

Multiseat means that many users can be logged on at once, with their own monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

Multihead means that your desktop spans multiple monitors.

Sure... that's what I wanted in the firs place and that's why I said I wanted multiple KVMs (meaning keyboard, video, mouse).

But your title says "mulithead".
