32MB doesn't sound like anywhere near enough to me. Are you sure?

IIRC, all of:


worked with both X600 and X1300 with 256MB (IIRC) in KDE3 and KDE4 in Fedora
(19/Rawhide), Mageia (4/Cauldron) and openSUSE (13.1/Factory) at least.

Your xorg.conf is loaded with things automagic should handle. I'd cut yours
down to just device, monitor and screen sections, and only include in them
what you need to get the desired extended screen positioning you're after.
You ought to be able to get a working one using any of the above as a
template. Even mine include a few more lines than are actually necessary
(e.g. DefaultModes, HorizSync & VertRefresh).
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
