View Full Version : Q: ATI - extended desktop

13th September 2006, 08:25 AM

I know that there are many topics about this but trying to find the working way from all those is a bit hard.
I'm thinking is it possible to easily setup xorg.conf to work this way:
TV is the extended desktop (by default it has only the background), I can drag windows there etc. And when I start a movie on the main display (laptop), then the picture will be automatically on TV with full screen.
This is very easy to setup in Windows, but could you give me the commands for Linux's drivers?

Well I don't know how to get it working for "automatically put video on the TV" but you definitely can have a big screen and play movie on any of them.

try use aticonfig --dtop=horizonal --overlay=1 to set up the xorg.conf
