I don't know--I never knew anything about X internals, never had to because what I used worked OK, and know even less now.  But even a blind dog finds a bone once in a while.  I was hoping to get lucky.

That's probably much closer to working here than your DEs!  How did you do it?  As far as I can see, what you documented in this post is what I have--unless you are using framebuffers--except maybe for the xrandr --panning command.

I went back to look at the xrandr command in your first reply to see if that made a difference, but I couldn't figure out a proper --output parameter.  The DVI-I-1 you used didn't satisfy it.  Neither it, nor the XID, are defined in the man page!  Great documentation.  NOT.
