Thread: Full screen applications on second monitor

    Default Full screen applications on second monitor

    Hi,

    I have a problem running applications in full screen on my second monitor, it goes to full screen, but not entirely, it leaves a space of like 20-50 pixels at the top.

    Note, I'm not able to screenshot it, if that helps.

    I have the ati drivers installed, screen is set to 1360*768 (preferred)

    Here's the xorg.conf if that's related, not sure how to troubleshoot this

    Code:
    Section "ServerLayout"
    	Identifier     "aticonfig Layout"
    	Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
    EndSection
    
    Section "Files"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Module"
    EndSection

    	Option	    "TargetRefresh" "60"
    	Option	    "Position" "1360 0"

    	EndSubSection
    EndSection

    If you're using KDE you may want to doublecheck for any empty panels.. they're rather hard to spot if they don't have any content and you have compositing (enabling transparency) enabled.

    The wallpaper does cover the entire screen?
    Special effects <- KDE 4.2 Showing off
    More KDE -> PINK KDE

    Sorry gnome, and yes the wallpaper covers the entire screen

    This problem was fixed by using Xinerama (through the ati drivers) instead of using the preset multiscreen options by ati.
