I've recently installed Fedora 18 and the only gripe I have so far is that everything is spread between two monitors. Example: The date is currently half on one monitor, half on the other. I get 'Thu Apr 2' on one and '5, 11:16' on the other.

Along with that, the activities panel is spread between both as well.

Do you mean Fedora 18? Fedora 13 is 2.5 years old and it's unlikely you would have downloaded it unless you were intending to. –  drs Apr 25 '13 at 15:40

The issue actually has nothing to do with fedora regardless of version. It's about configuring the Xorg server. Sounds like you are getting "xinerama" mode. –  goldilocks Apr 25 '13 at 15:42

Under normal circumstances, the "Activities" panel is only displayed on one monitor. Have you edited /etc/X11/xorg.conf? When you go to System Settings -> Displays, how many monitors appear? If two, does the black panel appear on both monitors (the ones shown in the Displays dialog)? –  drs Apr 25 '13 at 15:46
