Hi,

I am trying to configure a somewhat complicated X session.

Here is how stuff is connected:
Projector (PJ) connected via DVI
LCD connected via VGA
nvidia 6200 AGP video card

Here is what is happening now:
I have seperate X sessions running on each display. On logon of my Myth user MythFrontend starts on the Projector and i get a fluxbox desktop on the LCD.

Here is what i want to happen:

Upon logon the PJ screen starts fluxbox with MythFrontend on it. Then on the LCD Gnome is started. I would like to keep Fluxbox on the PJ as mythruns much faster with the lightwieght window manger. On the LCD i would like to use gnome becuase i want to manage the server from there.

Is this possible?

Here is a copy of my xorg:
