    Question xRandR

    Hello all!


    I'm currently trying to get all 3 monitors to act as 1.. So I can play Nexuiz or some such games on linux for some lulz!
    Kind of like eyefinity, but on linux.


    Right now Fedora 16 is treating them as all individual monitors. I can play nexuiz fine on the far left monitor.. But i'd like it to be full screened on all 3 monitors if possible



    About:
    Same Model monitors, same size, same everything
    Fedora 16
    All monitors are connected to 1 video card.

    Some output of xRandR

    Default

    The software hacks introduced with Eyefinity to merge several monitors into one large virtual monitor are windows only. If Nexuiz is to create a multi-screen setup, Nexuiz must support such configurations on its own.

    The simplest workaround is to play in windowed mode and maximize the window across all screens. Use any means provided by your window manager to turn the window borderless and maximized (e.g. KWin has a "fullscreen" hotkey that'll turn windows both maximized and borderless, but I'm not sure what the default hotkey was.)
