Interchange Monitors


Hi I set up dual head with the nvidia drivers but I can't get the monitors in the correct order. You see I want the login and the desktop panels and all that on a certain monitor but it is currently set to the wrong one. How can i fix this?

Hmm.. apparently nvidia described it as a bug like 7 months ago and still have not done anything about it.

I wonder if Gnome can support switching its desktop between displays?
