Ubuntu Multihead Support

Registered by TobiasDomhan on 2008-12-27

Ubuntu is lacking a good support of multiple monitors in any way. Either this is because of bugs on gnome or because setting up an multihead environment is not "ubuntu" easy.
This would involve:
-give gnome some love concerning multihead bugs. (e.g. programs opening on the wrong monitor)
-make the setup of an multihead environment dead easy, through the ubuntu configuration
-switching back and forth between single head and multihead should be flawless, especially for notebook users, e.g. when using the laptop monitor alone you should not have 4 gnome panels only because you used 2 on each monitor in an multihead setup
