What happens if you want to set the framebuffer size to the size of
your two monitors combined?
1280x1024+1280x1024 would be:
xrandr --fb 2560x1024
Afterwards xrandr should say "current 2560x1024" somewhere at the
beginning of it's output.
I assume your two monitors work in clone, so i i'm wondering if it's
the framebuffer allocation that causes the problem.
Far away from the primal instinct, the song seems to fade away, the
river get wider between your thoughts and the things we do and say.
