X11: Dual monitors with extended desktop mode? [TIPP]

Postby xerces8 » 16 Aug 2015, 17:39

Is extended desktop mode supported?

I booted sysrescd 4.5.4 on a laptop that had an external monitor connected and started X.
In the Display preferences, both displays are detected and I can select a resolution for each.

But both show the same image. I could not find an option to enable different content for each.
Is there an option somewhere else?
Or can it be done by editing config files?

I knowo this is an old thread but it is at the top of (well my) google search.

I got these steps from this link: http://askubuntu.com/questions/62681/ho ... rs-in-xfce

Click the cd icon (lower left hand corner)
Select settings and click Settings Manager
Click on Display
un-check mirrored display

Good luck!

P.S. The confimation codes on this board are super hard it took me like 5 tries to register.
