Thanks GD!

My other monitors are online but now we face another issue.

Apparently that command activated xinerama and I am unable to disable it using its respective command. In addition xinerama is glitching like no tomorrow.

Any ideas? Already tried "aticonfig --xinerama=off" with no success. Going to keep playing around.

Update.

After some additional tinkering I am able to interact with all the monitors now, however I still have an issue that would be better described in a photo.

As you can see, this is not cinnamon.

Any ideas?

The intresting things is, a right click on the pannel doesn't even register.

System had a serious issue. Every time I restarted the system to check changes an additional pannel appeared. Apparently this placed a massive load on the unit after the 30th bar or so.

The only solution I could find to that was to purge FGLRX and reconfigure the appropriate applications.

I am back to the open source drivers and my two extra monitors are back offline. How would I be able to power up these other two monitors via the open source driver?
In the mean time I will attempt to figure it out myself.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that my cinnamon is back! Yay!


Commands used to purge and reconfigure...
Code:
apt-get remove fglrx
apt-get remove --purge xorg-driver-fglrx fglrx*
apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx:amd64 libgl1-mesa-dri:amd64 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 xserver-xorg-core
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
shutdown -r 00

I still have not found a solution. I am using the open source drivers again and my second graphics card is not displaying video but is powering up the monitors.
