Yes, it is enabled by default in 7.10 AFAIK. A bad choice, IMO, given that it's relatively immature and resource intensive. There was a known issue with Compiz and TwinView. Compiz ignores the Xinerama monitor size information and just pretends it is one big monitor for maximize and fullscreen type operations. Obviously not the right behavior. I believe it is an unresolved issue in the official Compiz branch.
In X, try running "metacity --replace" (in a terminal, as your user). That should replace compiz with metacity as your WM. Check and see if that changes the maximize behavior.

I haven't manually set anything in the xorg.conf it was all done through nvidia-settings. Want me to repaste it?bitvector wrote:king_kilr wrote:Which deffinately indicates that it is viewing the 2 as one, want me to run that after the metacity?
No, that part is independent of your WM, so something with TwinView is not set right with your Xorg config.
