Dual screen in Linux with ATI

Filed under
Software

I’ve just gone dual screen, and after two weeks I cannot imagine going back. Fantastic! Open Office always open on the right screen, Firefox/Thunderbird/Eclipse/Topologi/command shells in the left. This configuration makes it much easier to do research (cutting) in the left and writing (pasting) in the right: it seems to improve the rythm and sponentaity.

I feel noticeably more productive.

I’m still using my year+ old Mandrake 10 with fairly old graphics cards. Some of the info on the web was not quite right. For anyone in the same boat, here is the XF86Config-4 file I ended up hacking together.

Full Story.

It is early days and there is some old content on the site which is a bit out of date but I plan to make linux.about.com a great resource for everyone. Read more
