View Full Version : [ubuntu] Boundaries on smaller screen in Dual Display conf.

May 26th, 2009, 06:54 PM

Does anyone know how to restrain the boundaries of the smaller resolution screen in a dual screen setup using Ubuntu 9.04 and the radeon/ati driver?

I have a 1280x800 screen and another with 1280x1024. When I hit the bottom of the small screen, the cursor will continue further down as if the screen was the same size of the bigger one.

Thanks is advance

I'm also curious about this.

My primary screen has a height of 1024 and my secondary has a height of 1080.

What makes it difficult is that I have Gnome Do in "Docky" mode on the primary screen in "Auto-hide" mode. So I have to move the mouse to the exact pixel row of the bottom of my primary screen :(

Yep, that's the easiest way to perceive the problem. In my case, I just have an auto-hiding Gnome panel in the bottom...

Now I also wonder if this is a problem with X.org, Ubuntu or just Gnome...

I also posted a screenshot with the screen setup scheme.

Any ideas out there? :)

I was wondering if someone has an explanation for this...
