I have a laptop with a Nvidia G105M, the main monitor has a 1366x768 resolution and I am trying to configure an external monitor to become independent from the main monitor (laptop screen).
With Twinview I expand the workspaces, which every time i change to another workspace it happens in both monitors and that's not what I need, I only need the external monitor for VirtualBox, mupen64plus and VLC.
I can't use the Monitor Settings as it always says unknown in the monitor image. So I use the Nvidia Settings, where in the monitor configuration area I click Detect and the 2nd Monitor appears as Disabled and now I can configure the 2nd Monitor in Twinview or Separate X Screen. However when I use Twinview the second Monitor IS an extension from the 1st Monitor which means that when I switch Workspaces, it switches in both monitors. What I want is to have the 2nd monitor to NEVER change workspaces so that I can always see the same window in it, be it VirtualBox, VLC or Terminator
I looked around the forums and the questions here but didn't find anything that related to my situation.
