The entire is well in the fundamental installation department; my two monitors run extremely well. I did not difficulty by means of xinerama or no matter which similar to by means of the intention of, in view of the fact with the intention of it's not similar to I am going to be dragging programs connecting screens by means of ratpoison anyway. I am approximately happy. There is presently one thing: When I open a program on one monitor, I not be able to make it come into view on the additional monitor. I am not being able to shift xterm or Thunderbird in excess of to screen 2. (Unless I close a program, move in excess of to screen 2, then re-open the prog, additional than by means of the intention of would be ridiculous.) I have googled this predicament additional than I am coming up empty-handed. Anyone got several lights to get rid of it.

Re: Using ratpoison for multiple monitors

The Rodent procedure is minimized and the keyboard is encourage, relieving your arms and shoulders and declining the risk of damage Ratpoison runs well by means of multiple monitors. The Ratpoison key bindings are extremely comparable to those of GNU Screen and be supposed to be recognizable to users by means of experience utilizing Screen. To start by means of, ratpoison has a number of radically dissimilar concepts regarding utilizing a system. First, you not be able to drag windows approximately the "desktop", the entire windows are make most excellent use of to the full screen size and by means of the intention of not be able to be changed. For the reason with the intention of of this, you do not necessitate window decorations, in view of the fact with the intention of they would steal precious space. When you give the impression of being at a program, the merely thing you observe is the program. You are not forced to give the impression of being at merely one program at a time on the other hand a window be able to be subdivided into a number of adjacent (additional than not overlapping!) frames; every of these frames holds a solitary program which is take full benefit of within its frame. In Emacs terms, there is one window, split into one or supplementary frames, in which every buffer is exposed in one and only one frame.
