Re: [vox-tech] Tux Paint, Fullscreen, and dual monitors

If you configure the dual monitors through the Nvidia control panel, set them for separate X screen logins, and then enable Xinerama, you get the ability to move windows from one screen to the other. 

Tuxpaint --fullscreen expands to fill one of the monitors, but not both.

 It may not work at this point.  I'm planning a full review of
 fullscreen support in SDL 1.3 in the next 3 weeks or so.

:^/  If you experiment and come up with a solution (in terms of how you
set things up in Twinview and/or the X server), do let me know!
