1) mv xorg.conf xorg.conf.old
2) aticonfig --initial -f
3) aticonfig --set-pcs-str="DDX,EnableRandR12,FALSE"

The above should enable big desktop after logging out etc. I then setup my dual monitor config (through the ATI catalyst control center), logged out one more time, and enabled desktop effects. Worked without any problems and did not see any cursor corruption. I've had it running the past 12 hours without any freezes or issues.


Xorg below:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "aticonfig Layout"
Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0

Section "Files"

Section "Module"

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "Xinerama" "off"

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
Option "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
Option "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
Option "DPMS" "true"

Section "Device"
Identifier "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
Driver "fglrx"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
Device "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
Monitor "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
The third line fixed the issues I was having as well, allowing me to disable the software cursor.

aticonfig --set-pcs-str="DDX,EnableRandR12,FALSE"
Thank you.
