Excellent HOWTO to get twinview working with dual monitors and an applicable video card:

Interesting. The guide is really straight to the point… but I still am missing something. I notice here you set the second monitors h and v range… this might be where i am having my issue. shouldnt my second monitor have its own section? and then maybe reference back to that? I am writing this from Lynx if that tells you anything 🙂

With TwinView (specifically nVidia) you only define the Second Monitor as shown in the HowTo. It’s that simple. If you don’t have an nVidia Dual Head Video card it’s a whole other animal called Xinerama to configure dual monitors. My recommendation is to buy an nVidia card it’s so much easier and works better.

Thank you oh thank you.
3 days and a lot oh hours later. and I finally got it working
the one line at the end did it for me.
“Screen Resolution” set to 2560*1024
for whatever reason I have not seen that anywhere else.
