Multiple simultaneous desktops on a single monitor - Is it possible?
After searching in here and the web with no satisfying result(s), I'm writing basically to ask if anyone knows if it can be done.
I was able to find only the following (full post here ):
The thing is that I mainly use Gnome or LXDE (or no advanced graphics desktop manager at all).

The issue is the following: I have an LCD TV and a monitor (the latter is not actually mine and will be returned in the next few weeks). I was thinking some minutes ago if it could be possible to use a single HW monitor (in this case the LCD widescreen) and have it split in several "virtual monitors" (2 or 4) instead of having to switch between them all the time.
Main distros I usually use:
- Ubuntu / Lubuntu
- Kali Linux
If it works on Ubuntu / Lubuntu it would be a major improvement since I use the other ones on Virtual Box most of the time for study purposes (even though some of them are actually installed on the hard drive itself as well).
Otherwise, I would eventually buy two monitors if I have enough money. So, if that is the case, kindly point me out which hardware specs would my pc need regarding video and how to set it up.
Thank you very much in advanced.
