Description Justin 2009-12-03 02:49:21 UTC
I am sure this has been raised before, but I would really like to see some of these issues sorted.

When using dual head/multiple monitors on my Ubuntu 9.10 system, I am receiving follow (but not limited to) issues:
	Wallpaper is centered across both screens. Seperate wallpapers would be cool, but I would settle for one per monitor.
	Dead-space recognition - Having my mouse move into dead-space and being lost is one thing, but having icons be moved into it is just too hard to deal with.
	Icons in general - Could it be made that when you select "Make this my primary monitor", that all icons are arranged on that monitor, WITHIN the actual screen resolution, as after all, I am selecting a "Primary monitor" for a reason.

If these bugs could get resolved, it would be a great improvement to gnome, and the Linux desktop!
