(12:12:43 PM) davidfraser: I'm trying to get compiz to switch my Viewports independently for two screens - the mmmode setting seems to have no effect
(12:13:00 PM) davidfraser: I'm using Xrandr - do I need to rather configure multiple monitors in my xorg.conf to make this work?
(12:21:34 PM) maniac103: davidfraser: you need separate X screens (separate screen sections in xorg.conf), otherwise it's not possible
(12:21:50 PM) davidfraser: thanks maniac103
(12:22:12 PM) ***davidfraser thinks this is suboptimal, particularly for laptops where screens are attached and removed mid-session
(12:34:55 PM) crdlb: davidfraser: regardless, xrandr-output-specific viewport movement would be total crack
(12:56:40 PM) davidfraser: crdlb: Why do you say xrandr-output-specific viewport movement would be total crack? Methinks it would totally rock
(12:57:23 PM) adamk_: It would be one massive hack to implement.
(12:57:41 PM) davidfraser: That's true...
(12:58:15 PM) adamk_: Well what developer wants to constantly maintain a nasty hack moving forward?
(01:02:40 PM) davidfraser: OK the question is is it a desirable feature - if so perhaps more APIs etc need to be added to X to make it feasible in a non-hacky way
(01:09:52 PM) adamk_: I don't like it in e17, so I doubt I'd like it in compiz. I'm quite sure others would feel differently.
(01:09:56 PM) adamk_: So get coding then
(01:13:52 PM) davidfraser:
