    Default How to expand backgroung on Dual Monitor?

    Hi all,

    First post here. I have added an additional monitor to my system.

    I know I ccan right-click on the primary monitor desktop to select a back ground image.

    However, I cannot seem to figure out how to expand the selection to the second monitor OR how to set the second monitor background individually.

    Thanks in advance.

    Forgot:

    NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500 drivers installed
    KDE enviroment
    Activate Dual Head Mode - Selected
    "Activated in Xinerama mode with 1920 x 1200"
    Activated 3D Acceleration - Selected

    When I exit sax2 and do the "TEST" I see blue background on both screens. But when X-server restarts monitor #2 remains black back ground.

    I have had my best luck by only setting up the first monitor through sax (so as to start with a clean xorg.conf), and then use the Nvidia settings utility to set up the multi-monitor configuration from there. You may want to try that to see if it makes a difference for you.
