Description Chris Spencer 2008-03-16 11:34:44 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a dual head setup, and each monitor is able to display up to 1280x1024.
However, the actual size being displayed is 2560x1200, requiring the user to
"scroll" with the mouse in order to see everything. Also, in the second monitor,
the mouse displays as a 100x100 white block with randomly scattered red and blue
pixels. I tried taking a screenshot of this, but the screenshot utility only
seems to work in the first monitor.

How reproducible:
Every time.

Expected results:
Mouse should display correctly. Resolution should be set to one specified in

Additional info:
I have an ATI Radeon X300 graphics card.

Comment 3 Chris Spencer 2008-03-16 12:16:36 EDT
After toying around with my xorg.conf, I was able to fix the first problem by
specifying "Virtual 1280 1024" in the display subsection for each screen. I was
able to fix the second problem by specifying "SWCursor" "on" in the device
section for my second monitor.

Can you try the ati driver in F9 updates to see if it fixes the cursor problem?

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
