Re: Matrox G400 DualHead


I've been requesting some information on the Linux Support Forum at Matrox.  The list is very helpful and is a free signup. 

I'm hoping between this list and the matrox list I can get some help. Because we both know that the Linux Power Desk and Drivers don't seem to directly support this. But is a feature I used frequently on my windows box.

Anyhow, I will let you know if any answers are found.

 If you get any replies please forward them to me as I asked this
question twice in the last half a year. No answer, yet. I also tried to
bug a local Linux guru who is deep down into the multihead (last I heard
he was running 6 monitors) and he just said it would be an "interesting
problem to solve", but didn't have any solutions as well. Is there a way
we could get an answer from Matrox? What do you think?
