I got two screens(extended desktop) and the second is widescreen standing on its side, so i told ubuntu that its vertical, it works fine, but the wallpaper area of the first horizontal smaller one, goes all the way down to the size of the vertical one. The problem is the icons on my desktop get in the hidden area, when they are created and i have to be constantly moving them to see them.
Oddly enough this does not happen in xfce only in the gnome desktop.
I thought it was nautilus fault so i tried pcmanfm to render my desktop/wallpaper, same issue. It's a gnome thing.
How can i make it so the geometry is not a big square but 2 rectangles on my desktop
The left part is the small widescreen monitor, the right is the widescreen vertically placed. And i can move my mouse on the left way below the visible part, and the desktop icons are going down there too i have to reposition them manually.
xrandr --current outputs this:
