I've got a VNC server configured on my linux server and i can connect to it and it works, ive set the resoltuion to 1920x1080 and it uses one of my monitors, and works well in full screen.

I currently have 3 screens connected to my local PC and was wondering is there a way, other than changing the vnc resolution to 1920x3240, to make my vnc session start up as if i was using a linux desktop locally with 3 monitors attached.

Currently my xstartup file reads

# !/bin/shxrdb $HOME/.Xresources
xsetroot -solid grey
x-terminal-emulator -geometry 1920x1080 -ls -title "$VNCDESKTOP Desktop" &
# x-window-manager &
gnome-session &

I would presume i will need to add in another screen/emulator, but i am unsure as to how i would go about configuring this ?
