Subject: twm and intel dual head using xrandr

Hi all,

I am using an Intel 945G graphical adapter with an ADD2 PCIe card to get a secondary display.

Making calls to xrandr 1.2 as suggested in I was able to get a dual head setup working fine.

The only problem I have is that the top left corner of each of my windows always end up on my first screen when I try to move them on my secondary screen.

I am using 1280x768 resolution on my first screen and 1024x768 on my second one.  My Virtual screen size as set in Xorg.conf is 2048x2048.  I am using TWM.

Would that be a TWM limitation? (I could not find anything while searching the web)

Thanks in advance
Hugo Jacques
