Salut William,

I'm running Ubuntu on a intel box and I'm under the impression that 
xinerama isn't well configured for the X server even though it says it 
loads it correctly. But before diving into the X server config I wanted 
to make sure that Xfce doesn't need something special to use Xinerama.
I use the Xfce RC1 installed with the installer. So my question 
basically is ... do I need to compile Xfce with Xinerama support 
specifically or is this activated per default?
