Description Cornelius Hald 2004-06-15 16:16:32 UTC
I'm using a xinerama setup. My primary screen
(left) is set to 1024x768 and my secondary screen
(right) is set to 1280x960.

If I create a file on my desktop (e.g. with touch)
and the desktop on my primary screen is quite full
with icons, the new icon is not placed on the
secondary screen, but on the primary.
The problem is that this new icon is not (or
almost not) visible, because it is at the very
bottom of the screen. There are maybe 2-5 Pixels
left to see.

It seems to me, that nautilus takes the
screen-height of 1280 for the whole desktop, which
is of course wrong.

I'm currently using:
under Gentoo
