How to span dual monitors with Xvesa?
« on: April 10, 2019, 02:16:19 AM »
Hi, I am using HP t610 thinclient with DP and DVI-I outputs. `Xvesa -listmodes` could list out modes for both monitors together. But only DP has output, DVI-I is no signal. Searching though the forum, I saw a thread said that switching to xorg could work, although he did not say Xvesa is in no way.

So any idea how to make it work?

Hello ronj. Xvesa doesn't support xinerama which is essential to use dual monitors.  It works only with Xorg.


Design choices

We aim for the smallest fully featured X server binary. Currently there are the vesa and
fbdev servers, but others may appear in the future (Xmodesetting?).

- no xkb; it's bloat when console keymaps suffice
- no xinput
- no xinerama
- no gl
- TCP listening disabled by default, shadow FB enabled by default
