Multihead#Full_screen_games says Just as you can switch between text consoles with Alt+Ctrl+F1 and back to X with Alt+Ctrl+F7, the new display will sit on Alt+Ctrl+F8. Is this still true? Is it true only for some setups? Can somebody please update it? -- Karol (talk) 04:27, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
- No surprise, its parent section is marked as out of date...
- Now seriously, it's certainly very specific to the setup - on my system the main X session starts on tty1, so tty7 is free. Plus this can be configured by the
vtXXargument passed to Xorg.

Anyone have more information on separate screens?
If you do, please expand that section.
I have one card (ATI 720, using the xorg server) with multiple outputs -
DisplayPort-0 HDMI-0 DVI-0 DVI-1
is it even possible to have multiple xorg screens in this situation, and if so, how? I'm not finding it yet.
I run several virtualboxes and using "full screen" or "seamless" is just completely unwieldy, especially as the monitors are different sizes / resolutions. The virtualbox guest system seems to flip between the resolution of either monitor. Distracting to say the least.
I got one of the monitors to use to read documents in and use the normal landscape mode for the 2nd monitor.
