    I'm trying to run an extended desktop with gentoo and fluxbox as my WM. I was wondering if you guys could help me figure out whats gone wrong. I only have one video card that's dual head. The problem is when I startx fluxbox comes up WAY too big and my second monitor shuts off. Here is the config file:

    Code:
    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "X.Org Configured"
    Screen "Screen0" LeftOf "Screen1"
    InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    # PS/2 Mouse not detected
    # Serial Mouse not detected
    InputDevice "USB Mouse" "AlwaysCore"
    #No Synaptics touchpad found
    EndSection
    
    Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "Xinerama" "true"
    EndSection
    
    Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "AllowMouseOpenFail" "true"
    EndSection

    Thanks in advance

    I tried using the fglrxconfig and this somewhat worked, but now when X boots up it goes to a SORT of clone head config. When i do something on one monitor it does the same on the other. Only thing is, is there isn't another pointer on the other screen. Also, I can go from monitor to monitor. But i can't do anything on the left screeen while i can do whatever i want with the right screen. Any suggestions as to what option i could enable/disenable with this?
