Hi, i'm trying to set up dual monitors on my Ubuntu setup. I want to be able to drag stuff from one over to the other, as I can do on my Windows setup. I'm able to get Big Desktop working through the ATI Catalyst config utility, but the resolution is forced to 2048x768 or something, splitting the two monitors between the two resolutions, meaning stuff looks fine on my CRT, but everything is stretched on my widescreen. Is there a way to have 2 different resolutions?
I tried removing the fglrx drivers and reinstalling, using the Dual Monitor Support With Binary, ATI-Only Big-Desktop tutorial as a tutorial to install with Big-Desktop support, but when I try to input my two resolutions (I want to use 1280x1024 and 1680x1050) it won't add it to the xorg.conf file.
I'm a linux rookie, but I'm picking it up pretty quick... but this is leaving me pretty stumped. Hopefully someone can help me with this, because 2 functional monitors is one of the reasons i like using Windows right now... and if I can, I'd like to make the full switch to Ubuntu
I have an ATI Radeon 9600 with two outputs, which are connected to a 17" CRT and a 22" widescreen. Any help would be appreciated. If you need any more info, let me know
