You can easily create multiple virtual screens using VNC (http://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/). VNC allows you to set up a virtual Unix display and display it on an arbitrary Unix/Windows/etc. machine. You can simply set up several such displays and view them all from the same monitor. This would be a good way to test multiple screens on a single machine. However this brings up a problem - VNC allows you to specify arbitrary display numbers (I habitually use :3), so you should be able to specify any screens for the split, not just :0 and :1. -- Ted Richards [Ian: Sorry for the double reply, I forgot to reply to all.] -----Original Message----- From: Ian Edwards [mailto:ian_at_concerto.demon.co.uk] I have extended this to support two displays but can only test it with the nested X server as I don't have access to appropriate hardware. To get the windows on different screen you use '-split:0' (1st window on screen 0, 2nd on screen 1) or '-split:1' (1st window on srceen 1, 2nd on screen 0).
