    Question about the same configuration

    Hey,

    thx for the nice article about MultiView. I have the same alignement configuration of displays (4 Dell with 1920x1200 each) and two ATI HD4850. The used driver is 8.9.
    My Problem is, that my Ubuntu 8.04 system recognizes only two displays of the first graphics adapter. Has anybody an idea?

    Thx a lot
    drego

    here is my xorg.conf
    Code:
    # xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
    #
    # This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
    # values from the debconf database.
    #
    # Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
    # (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
    #
    # This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
    # if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
    # package.
    #
    # If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
    # again, run the following command:
    #   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

      Hi Guys, this feature looks realy handy. Just what I have been looking for. Unfortunatyl I cant seem to be able to reproduce it in later versions of Ubuntu. I have so far not tried downgrading to 8.4. But so far it looks like sort of the last resort. Anybody who has any luck using MultiView in Ubuntu 9.4?
