View Full Version : [ubuntu] Stretch window over multiple outputs using console

March 12th, 2014, 11:28 AM

I have the following problem:
I have a node with three screens with xinerama enabled
card: nvidia quadro 4600
I did not manage to span a window over all screens via console.

reproduce easily with:
one node with two monitors
-> nvidia settings -> X Server Display Configuration -> Separate X screen and Enable Xinerama

With this configuration it is possible to place a window over the edge, one half on one monitor and the other half on the other, by dragging it with the mouse.

Is it possible to do the same with the console?
The geometry option does not work, the window size and position snaps to one or the other monitor..
wmctrl has the same problem
I searched in Compiz manager but nothing worked..

any hints are greatly appreciated :)

Best regards,
