At the beginning of last week I posted to our identica that I was bummed over the Nvidia twin view in that I could not drag windows between the different screens. Fab from linuxoutlaws recommended Xinerama. So I eventually got around to that. It was a painless configuration and I did get the ability to move windows between the screens. The only downside was that now I cannot switch virtual desktops between the screens independently. That does not work for me.
It would be nice if there was a way to have independent screens between which I could pass windows back and forth. When I switch to the second virtual desktop of the first screen, the second remains on the first virtual desktop.
I also noticed that with twin view, if I attempt to open a link from the second screen, it will not hit the firefox on the first screen. Instead, it will complain that there is already another instance of firefox running. I wonder if there is a fix for that?
Two problems there I will have to investigate. Anyone have any ideas?
