    You need an nVidia driver that supports Xorg v1.5 - there is a beta version out 96.43.09 (legacy, BETA) for Linux x86/x86-64 - link.

    Yes, I have an nVidia card and setting up twinview is very easy.

    I still think that it should be possible with a Radeon 7000 though with the xinerama approach.

    The driver line for your intel card still looks wrong. Your indeftifiers are also the same for the monitors as the drivers which may be a little confusing. Try:

    OK. I think you will need "fglrx" for the proprietary driver, not "radeon" as I suggested earlier.

    Hopefully you won't need to reboot, just restart the X server.

    Thanks. From reading other threads I wasn't very keen on the Broadcom.

    I'm getting a similar error to this.

    It looks like Wine bug #7526 and could be fixed.

    It would be worth trying the latest version of Wine.
