In ubuntu 10.10 I have a dual monitor setup. I have an nVidia graphics card and am using twinview. One of the monitors is 1024 pixels high and the other is 900. In the monitor configuration screen & in real life, I have them set up side by side, 1024 on the left.
The result of this is that when I am on the bottom of the left monitor and move the mouse to the right, it goes into the hidden area below the right monitor's visible area.
It seems like it would make a lot more sense for it to be bumped up to the bottom of the right monitor - since one almost never wants to move the mouse into an area of the screen that doesn't show up. And, systems I have used before have been set up that way.
How can I set this up?
I am not interested in lists of window managers for ubuntu; I would like to know the identity of a particular WM or set of steps I can take to solves the particular problem I have outlined above. Thanks!
EDIT: I changed to use two seperate X window monitors, and it works better. if you cross in an area that the target monitor doesn't cover, the software just puts you at the nearest point to where you crossed.
EDIT LATER: You can use XCreateMouseVoid to do this; I used it to improve the setup even more in Connecting two monitors at the corners
using XCreateMouseVoid has the advantage of letting you use just one X window, so Alt-Tab shows all windows and you can move them between the screens without any dead areas.
