    Hi all,

    I hope someone can help me out.

    Using CentOS 6 with xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.99.911-6.el6.x86_64 with icewm and 2 monitors. CPU's are i3 and i7 at the moment but others might be used in the near future e.g. Celeron J1900 or N2930.

    Monitor1 = 1280x1024

    Monitor2= 1366x768

    Monitor 1 is above monitor 2. This has been done using xrandr --output VGA-0 --auto --output DP-0 --auto --below VGA-0


    I am able to move windows from one monitor to the other. So this part is functional.

    When a program is made fullscreen it is maximized to the monitor on which it is maximized but I would like to maximize it to both monitors using a size of 1280x1792.

    How do I achieve this?


    When a program is maximized to 1280x1792 some pixels on monitor 2 are unused, 1366-1280=86 pixels are not used. It would be very nice if it is possible to have 43 pixels on the left and 43 pixels on the right of the fullscreen program that are unused. The monitor itself should use its native resolution so that no distortion becomes visible.

    How do I achieve this?


    Best regards
