I hope you can help me. I am well experienced linux user and spent a lot of time configuring my dell d520 to work with two monitors.

It was NOT a trivial work mostly because of the stupid DRI 2048x2048 limitation.

I upgraded many packages today and now I have a problem when I click to full screen every program spans to both screens before the update it was spanning to the window it was running on.

It's simply odd.

Well I'll wait for a suggestion until sunday if you can not suggest anything I made a backup and will restore :-(

I played with X settings and with xrandr but it is not helping a lot.

What I think could be the problem is that I have to use virtual option in the screen section and now some KDE component is reading and passing this as screen size to the applications and before it was passing the coordinates of the monitor it was running on.

If I don't set this option the X server loads DRI and dual monitoring is disabled :-(

I can post a xorg.conf if you like

best regards
