Files/objects not showing on Desktop


I think I found a minor gnome or xorg bug due to an unusual monitor setup.

Here’s the setup: 2 dual NVIDIA display cards where I am using all 4 outputs. The monitors are arranged as an inverted T with Monitor 0 being at the junction of the T (xorg.conf segment shown below.)

When I place an object on the desktop SuSE puts it in the top left corner of the display. However, it does not take into account that I have no monitor in the “theoretical” top-left corner of the “theoretical” rectangle that the 4 monitors make up.

I have two questions:

  • If this is a bug, where do I report it?
  • Whether a bug or not, does anyone know how to correct or workaround this (without changing my monitor arrangement)?
