Extended desktop will only work when logging on as root


Ok I know it's a security issue but the only way I can make my extended desktop work is when logging on as root. Seems like there is something missing or something wrong with the rights of my normal user or something wrong with my xorg.conf.

Any help is much appreciated. Here's my xorg.conf:
