Backround with Twinview


If I have a sold color for a backround everything is fine. But if I have a picture one and it is centered it is acting like the monitors are attached to each other. I do not want to do this. I heard that I cannot use twin view. So I tried adding another monitor device and screen to XF86Config file but it fails. I post it here, but is there a way to avoid this and use twin view, or do I have to take this root? Well here is the file:

# Any number of monitor sections may be present

Section "Monitor"

Identifier "Monitor0"

# HorizSync is in kHz unless units are specified.
# HorizSync may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
# comma separated list of ranges of values.
# NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY. REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
# USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.

HorizSync 31.5 - 57.0

# HorizSync 30-64 # multisync
# HorizSync 31.5, 35.2 # multiple fixed sync frequencies
# HorizSync 15-25, 30-50 # multiple ranges of sync frequencies

# VertRefresh is in Hz unless units are specified.
# VertRefresh may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
# comma separated list of ranges of values.
# NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY. REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
# USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.

VertRefresh 50-90

EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor1"
HorizSync 31.5-57.0
VertRefresh 50-90
EndSection


Any number of graphics device sections may be present

# Standard VGA Device:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Standard VGA"
VendorName "Unknown"
BoardName "Unknown"

# The chipset line is optional in most cases. It can be used to override
# the driver's chipset detection, and should not normally be specified.

# Chipset "generic"

# The Driver line must be present. When using run-time loadable driver
# modules, this line instructs the server to load the specified driver
# module. Even when not using loadable driver modules, this line
# indicates which driver should interpret the information in this section.

Driver "nvidia"
# The BusID line is used to specify which of possibly multiple devices
# this section is intended for. When this line isn't present, a device
# section can only match up with the primary video device. For PCI
# devices a line like the following could be used. This line should not
# normally be included unless there is more than one video device
# intalled.

# BusID "PCI:0:10:0"

# VideoRam 256

# Clocks 25.2 28.3

EndSection

Device configured by xf86config:

Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA GeForce"
Driver "nvidia"
#VideoRam 131072
# Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
Screen 2

#Option "TwinView"
#Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "31.7-57"
#Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50-90"
#Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 800x600"

#Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, CRT"

EndSection

# Any number of screen sections may be present. Each describes
# the configuration of a single screen. A single specific screen section
# may be specified from the X server command line with the "-screen"
# option.

Any number of ServerLayout sections may be present. Each describes
# the way multiple screens are organised. A specific ServerLayout
# section may be specified from the X server command line with the
# "-layout" option. In the absence of this, the first section is used.
# When now ServerLayout section is present, the first Screen section
# is used alone.

Section "ServerLayout"

# The Identifier line must be present
Identifier "Simple Layout"

# Each Screen line specifies a Screen section name, and optionally
# the relative position of other screens. The four names after
# primary screen name are the screens to the top, bottom, left and right
# of the primary screen. In this example, screen 2 is located to the
# right of screen 1.

# Screen "Screen 1"

# Each InputDevice line specifies an InputDevice section name and
# optionally some options to specify the way the device is to be
# used. Those options include "CorePointer", "CoreKeyboard" and
# "SendCoreEvents".

InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"

Screen 1 "Screen1"
Screen 2 "Screen2"leftOf"Screen1"
EndSection

# Section "DRI"
# Mode 0666
# EndSection


Any ideas what I need to fix???????
