I've tried gnome-display-properties as well as lxrandr. Both only
detect one monitor. But it depends on which of my monitors I launch the
application from. In other words, they only detect the monitor on which
the application is running.
So I guess I have something fundamentally wrong in my xorg.conf, or this
is just not possible with separate video cards.
Something even more interesting: I set up fluxbox to show workspaces
1-4 on my primary monitor, and workspaces 5-6 on my secondary monitor.
Fluxbox lets me "send" a window to a different workspace, but I can't
send from workspace 1 to workspace 5 or 6. I can only send to a
different workspace on the same monitor.
