tunnelled x11 windows limited to one monitor

 
Hi, I have a dual display setup from my laptop and I would like to utilze both workspaces. However, any windows that are opened through my ssh connection will only stay on one of the monitors. For example, if i try dragging it to the other monitor it will snap back to the original as soon as I try to place it.

I suspect this is a simple fix, but I've messed with the single/multiple window modes and monitor settings on the devices tab.

any help appreciated!

Xmanager 2.0 opens a Monitor selection dialog box when multiple monitors are installed on your system. In the dialog box, select "Virtual Screen".

Hope this helps you.

Thanks - that did it. I thought I had tried all of those settings (virtual screen and both default monitors), but I guess I needed to restart Xmanager or something.

In any case - working great now, thanks!
