I appreciate the help. I do have the proprietary NVIDIA drivers installed, and have installed "X11-driver-video-nvidia-current" and "dkms-nvidia-current (260.19.29-1)" I am able to start "enable RENDER acceleration" and "enable duplicate display on second display" within PCC. Using the NVIDIA settings (from NVIDIA dock) I can enable "twin view" and see the same output in both monitors.
What I am trying to do (and am not sure if I can) is to have Workspace1 appear on my Dell monitor, while Workspace2 appears on my HP monitor. I am editing a paper and am trying to avoid having to flip back and forth between two open documents, and would like to see both at the same time.
Maybe it isn't possible, but I thought that I would try. Is there any other information that I can offer that would help someone assist me in figuring this out?
Amigo, I do this every day on two different computers both with dual monitors using the exact methodology I described
, you really don't need the "workspaces" or the switcher if you have two monitors, just drag the second document to the second monitor. You can open up an instance of your home file on one monitor and another on the second one. I can run graphics programs fullscreen on one monitor and undock all the tool palettes and put them on the second monitor, watch video on one and write documents on the other simultaneously, not sure what further functionality you are needing beyond that.
If you are seeing your taskbar, desktop icons etc. on the second monitor as well, then you need to make some adjustments in the Nvidia GUI, make sure you set which screen is the primary X screen, make sure you save your settings before quitting the Nvidia settings manager.
