I’m currently setup with 2 monitors on my Linux box using the NVidia drivers. One monitor is a 19 inch LCD (1280x1024), the other a 15 inch LCD (1024x768). The smaller monitor is monitor #1, so that’s where the main application panel is (the taskbar). That’s good; it’s where I want it. There’s a minor annoyance I would like to fix. Actually two, but I believe the second one I’ll have to live with.
The first is, on the small monitor, applications ‘know’ where the bottom of the screen is, but don’t ‘know’ where the top of the taskbar is. So if I maximize a window, the bottom of the frame doesn’t go to the top of the taskbar, it goes to the bottom of the screen. As I said, it’s a minor annoyance, but I would like to fix it. Is there anything to be done here?
The second is that my mouse believes that both monitors are (1280 and 1024) x1024 and consequently the pointer can get lost ‘below’ the small screen. This isn’t so bad though. I can’t do anything here, right?
