Hi Jeffery,

never tried that ...  is that a so called Zaphod head configuration?

Iirc, Olivier Fourdan explained somewhere, that this will not be
supported any more by gtk3. (Afaik gtk now only allows to manage a
single "screen" instance, having 1..N displays)

Since Xubuntu 20.04 / xfce 4.14 uses gtk3, Zaphod head is not supported

(Olivier, please correct me if I am wrong !)
