  1. Dual-Head Focus Problem

    Hi all,

    I recently added another monitor to my system, and configured x to use
    it, however whenever i move the mouse cursor to the right or bottom
    edge of my bottom screen, focus jumps back to the top screen.

    Both screens are connected to a single geforce 6200, the lower to DVI
    and the upper to VGA. I am using the program provided on
    http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Dual_Monitors to change focus. I am
    running x.org version 6.8.2 on linux 2.6.16. My xorg.conf follows.

    Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier "My Layout"
    Screen 1 "BottomScreen" 0 0
