I have been successful in using Dual-Head monitors for Linux. In the
xorg.conf configuration file, there are two sections for Monitors, two
sections for Devices (for the two cards), two Screen sections, and a
ServerLayout section to specify how the screens are in relation to each
The directions on how to remote the ":0" display (the console display) say
Option "SecurityTypes" "VncAuth"
Option "UserPasswdVerifier" "VncAuth"
Option "PasswordFile" "/root/.vnc/passwd"
Placing this in the "Screen" section remotes the console session, except
that it is not a dual screen, but only the "left" screen. I was expecting
to see a 2560x1024 vnc session, but I only see the "left" session.
Is it possible to remote a dual head console session on Linux?
