I finally got a second screen (my HDTV) to work in concert with my LCD through an eVGA GeForce 6200 AGP card. TV's on the DVI, LCD on the VGA.
My problem is as follows (and apparently it's not unique): The SuSE button for the menu is at the bottom left corner of the right screen. The menu opens at the bottom right of the left screen (my TV). I noticed that the little corner widgets menu is on the TV now, too.
I do not want this. I want nothing on my TV until I drag a VLC window over there to watch a video. Everything else should be on the LCD.
