Hi folks, I've got a setup with 3 1080p monitors mounted next to each other in portrait mode, for a total area of 3240x1920, however I want to set it up with "bezel compensation" (see link) which in Windows is called "Eyefinity" or "Single Large Surface". I want ~175 "pixels" of the total virtual screen to be between each monitor to compensate for the bezels around each monitor.
Basically, I'll tweak this setting until I can get a diagonal line across all three monitors that lines up with a ruler.
I'm setting this up to play video across all three screens.
I've gotten it working on my ATI card in Ubuntu using the proprietary fglrx driver, however I have a problem with 12.04 where applications won't maximize across all monitors. I previously had this working in 11.10. I think it's Unity's fault (and my fault that I can't work with Unity).
Here's my xorg.conf file which shows a virtual display surface of 3596x1920:
I just want a setup where I can turn the machine on and have it autoplay a video file across all three monitors with bezel compensation.
I'm more than willing to try the different editions of Mint, but if there are suggestions of which one might be my best bet, I'd appreciate it! Also if there is a better forum for this post, feel free to move it there.
