    Default KDE 4 multiple desktops (1 per monitor)


    I have 3 monitors and I want 3 independent copies of KDE4 running 1 per
    monitor, this means that each has its own independent toolabrs,
    startmenus ...

    so far i can only get kde to load on the first monitor, what do i need
    to change to get it to load on the additional desktops

    thanks,
    eric

    Wanted to better explain the issue I have X setup as Display :0.0,
    :0.1,:0.2 each all three are displayed, but I want KDE to startup 3
    times 1 per monitor, I have this working in openSUSE 10.2, so it is
    possible, however in openSUSE 11.1 I see no way to start the other 2
    instances of KDE up.
    As a results the only way to open a window on either of the other 2
    desktops is to export the DISPLAY and then run the program (which is
    then lacking any window manager). I assume there is some simple thing
    which I need to do to get this to work, but that is what I need to
    know.

    Thanks,
    ERIC

    Got an answer, simple put not supported in KDe after 3.5:

    'X server configuration for two monitors' (http://tinyurl.com/9rfjdd)

    Thanks,
