Xinerama support in the Linux version?

Post by acollin2 » Tue Dec 23, 2003 9:43 am


I'm having trouble with Blender 2.30 on a xinerama display under XFree86 4.2.1 on Debian Linux.

The top level window is maximised in the first monitor, but the internal widgets are too wide. The means that most of the application isn't visible and the menus popup when the mouse is to the left of them.

Does anyone know a way around this? I used to use Xnest but I can't get that to work a the moment...

doesn't xinerama disable hardware 3d acceleration anyway? I'd imagine blender's pretty sluggish in this config.

You should be able to use the +,- keys to scale
the internal widgets.
