    So are you still unable to move your mouse and keyboard input from one screen to the other. I always thought that "should just work" (tm) in zaphod mode.

      You are right, in fact, I can move mouse from one screen to another and back, it does not lock up like I had previously in 11.2. I just don't have desktop and background on second screen. But that's ok, I can still use it. I would probably work in 11.2 also if driver was configured correctly.

        Yeah, often you have to start editing scripts to get another window manager to start up on another display... This is particularly true with KDE4, which does not actually support separate screens. You can run KDE4 on one desktop, but not both.

          FWIW, GNOME will start on both heads.

            Cool, can't wait to try it with GNOME tomorrow.

              I'm sure there were some patches for KDE4 to work on zaphod, IIRC made by aseigo himself. I can't find them right now, and I don't know if they were ever officially merged.

                I use XFCE, it supports Zaphod well.

                  You probably mean this:

                  I don't know what this patch supposedly fixed, but plasma-desktop does not start on the second screen.
                  Kwin does though.
