Sorry for the sparse problem description, and I didn't mean to start an
off-topic thread.
My X is actually configured to support both displays (xorg.conf shows a
'screen2' section and a 'xinerama' option) and X is started with the
"+xinerama" switch. I was wondering what to do next, since it seems to
be the windows manager's job to place windows on either screen and I
can't find where to tell xfwm to do that.
Again, sorry if this the wrong place to ask - I am still under the
impression that it isn't though.
Thanks for any help and for your time!
