View Full Version : Dual-Head and Desktop Effects

11th June 2007, 03:14 PM

I got a dual-head setup and I can't make Desktop Effects to work, but on single-head mode it works fine.

I'll attached my xorg.conf for you experts to see. Thanks.

Did you read the compiz page about ati drivers? http://compiz.org/ATI
Its difficult to guess what the ati drivers will do. Seems strange that it wouldn't work in clone mode though. Nvidia cards and compiz works great in twinview, which is their proprietary dual-head mechanism. I suggest that you try different multi-head layouts to see if they'll work, such as xinerama.
