View Full Version : [all variants] TiwnView with just one Monitor!?

This may be a strange question: Is there a way to split ONE monitor so that it behaves like two screens?

What I want to achieve is the following: ATM I'm on a TwinView configuration with two 17" screens. I like the physical barrier between the two screens very much and the fact that maximizing a window only affects one screen.

Now I'm planning on buying a 23" monitor with a resolution of 2048x1152 for another computer. As the resolution is that high, it would be quite usefull to me if the desktop environment (GNOME in my case) could treat it as two screens with 1024x1152 each.

Is this possible? Any ideas?
