Linux

+ - [Linux] Two displays - two workspaces - possible? 1

Submitted by Borov
Borov (1649649) writes "I'm planning to buy a second monitor in near future and I was searching for ways to configure it under Linux. It seems there are two main ways:
1) to have one "big" desktop, which means I have single workspace — changing virtual desktop switches both monitors
2) to have separate X sessions for each display — which means I have separate workspaces, but I can't move applications between them

I need something in the middle — a separate workspace for each screen, so that I can have independent virtual desktops on each screen — but still have the ability to move applications between monitors (no need to strech one app across both of them)

I've read that some tiling window managers can do this kind of thing — but i'd rather go with "classical" window managers — like Openbox/Gnome/KDE or similar"
