    Re: 6 Monitors - Ubuntu 8.04 - Compiz Fusion - XGL NVIDIA Working! (Video Included)

    Thanks d2globalinc, your post was very helpful. I managed to get my dualmonitor setup up and running. I have seperate x screens with xinerama enabled and one of the monitors rotated at 90 degrees. Desktop effects and xinerama working just fine... now just one little problem... when i expand a window to full size it slightly goes across my rotated monitor.. how can i have it so that when i expand a window it only expands on selected monitor.. any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
