    Default AMDCCLE dual monitor identity problem

    My ATI graphic card has two outputs HDMI & DVI.

    I need the monitor attached to the HDMI output to be my secondary monitor.
    I need the monitor attached to the DVI output to be my primary monitor.

    AMDCCCLE will only identify the monitor attached to the HDMI port as the primary number 1 monitor.

    If I only attach a single monitor to the DVI port, then it is treated as the primary but when a second monitor is attached to the HDMI port then it automatically/dynamically updates and changes the DVI output to the secondary monitor again.

    Where is this configured in AMDCCLE and how do i stop it doing it.

    Default

    I have a similar problem using vga and dvi.
    For now my only solution is to use xrandr after I login.

    Code:
    xrandr --output CRT2 --primary
    This will switch the gnome panels over to the other monitor.
    Change CRT2 to whatever your monitors are configured as. You can find out by running xrandr without any parameters.

    Hope this helps.
