View Full Version : [ubuntu] Secondary monitor showing its own desktop?

December 3rd, 2010, 06:28 PM
Hi everyone,

On a laptop, using the external monitor option, can a secondary monitor be set up so that it operates separted from the main desktop?
I would like to have two desktops, and let the mouse and keyboard travel between them, but still have the secondary monitor keep showing the application/window I have set it to show, even if I switch the view of the primary screen to another workspace or desktop...

- is this be possible with Ubuntu 10.x?

(I am currently using 10.04 LTS, would be practical to know if an upgrade provides more/better opportunities in this respect.)
