I have spent a few days working on trying to get Xdmx to do what it was ment to do. I have two laptops that are exactly the same and I have cloned one to the other. They have onboard intel vid cards.
I have tried this with Archlinux (upgraded) and Debian Wheezy.
I can get Xdmx to connect just fine. It even shows a desktop.
What I cannot get it to do is let the mouse move to the other screen. If I drag a window across the screen like I want to put it on the client screen I can get a part of the window to show up on the client screen (depending on where I select it with the mouse).
Things display on the client screen is what I am saying and it appears to be passing the right information back and fourth.
I just cannot get the mouse to move outside the server/host screen.
I created an xorg.conf and tried to adjust the size of the virtual screen but it did not do anything. I made it something great like 5000xbla.
I know something is telling X or Xdmx that the screen is only so large (i think?) but Xdmx logs state the correct screen size.
Where is the Xdmx upstream at? I look at the original project page (sourceforge) and no files exist and the project is labeled as inactive. I know the project is active somewhere.
Thanks ahead of time for any help that you may give.
