Questions tagged [xinerama]

Xinerama is an extension to the X Window System that enables X applications and window managers to use two or more physical displays as one large virtual display. When Xinerama is enabled in the X server, multiple X screens can be unified into a single workspace. This unified work area allows windows to be transferred across X screens.
