Fedora core 5 - I had been using 'Remote Desktop' (Vino) to remotely view my desktop, as seen on the computer screen. I think this is known as viewing X display :0 (zero). It worked fine until I put in a new Nvidia 6200 AGP card and set up another monitor. Both monitors are coming off this new video card, one off the VGA port and the other off the DVI port. Running livna 87.62 nvidia drivers. Set up xorg.conf as:
Identifier "Multihead layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" RightOf "Screen1"
Screen 1 "Screen1" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Option "Xinerama" "on"
Option "Clone" "off"
Set up for 1280x960 on each monitor. This works fine on the monitors.
However, when running 'VNC viewer' on the computer and connecting back to itself, or running RealVNC viewer on another windows computer, I would expect that the viewer would show the combined desktop of 2560x960 to scroll around on within the viewer. I do, in fact, get a viewer size of about these proportions, but the left side of the viewer shows the left screen (with some block artifacts) and the right side of the viewer is black. The viewer also seems to stall and respond only slowly.
Starting a new VNC session is not an option as I want to remotely view the applications currently running on my computer monitors.
Is this a Vino server problem?? A viewer problem?? Does Vino support two screens in Xinerama mode??
Can anyone else replicate this problem? Any info would be good. Thanks.
