hi. i have been trying to get panels in xfce4.4 to understand that i have two screens and not to expand across both of them, but only one.
i am using the nvidia drivers and currently have it set to emulate xinerama mode as opposed to using twinview (although I tried that first with the same results)... my xorg.conf file has the xinerama option set to 1 and other apps seem to see this as being accurate (metacity can tell there are two screens and sticks to the edge of either)
how do i get xfce4-panel to know about both desktops? is there a setting i can do from command line to force it to use xinerama?
There should be three options in the panel customization dialog for the width, do you see those? Also, is there a monitor selection option?
The panel, and the rest of Xfce uses GTK to get information about monitors. I would think that metacity does the same.
