View Full Version : [ubuntu] Different Desktop Environment for each monitor

I have dual monitos atm (well, tri monitors when my HDTV is on).

I'd like to keep Gnome on my primary monitor, but on the other, I'd like something lightweight, preferably FluxBox.

They are running different X sessions already, so I'm just wondering how I would go about setting this up. It should have a smaller footprint too, am I right?

You could run it in xnest.

I don't really think that would work. Xnest would load yet another x session? But in a window.

I'm looking to replace a gnome desktop with fluxbox.
