View Full Version : [ubuntu] 4 monitor setup - full screen metacity

February 2nd, 2012, 07:30 PM

First post.....I've exhausted all my knowledge and google foo. Now, I need help if there are any technical geniuses out there....

I've got four monitors running off 2 nvidia graphics cards and have everything running smoothly across all four (vertically stacked) monitors.

I've had to use metacity due to some unknown reason, compiz kills everything in my setup.

I'd like to use google chrome stretched across all four monitors (preferably using F11 full screen). Unfortunately, this only stretches across two, either the top two or bottom two depending on where the window is when full screen is initialized. I can stretch it across four if I drag out the window size and glxgears --fullscreen spans across all four monitors.

My question I suppose is there anyway to specify the size of windows when full screen is called in metacity?
Is there anyway to get the full screen command to use the parameters used by the full screen tag in glxgears?
Any other helpful suggestions?
