[Bug 421392] Re: Desktop effects disabled after connection 2nd monotor


This actually is a hardware limitation. When your Virtual size is larger
than 2048 in any direction DRI is disabled so of course compiz and any
other 3D apps are either not going to work or run slowly. Based on your
issues with scrolling it sounds like it also disables all other
acceleration as well.

Basically, you cannot have desktop effects (or desktop acceleration of
any kind, apparently) and use a second monitor or even an xorg.conf that
would allow you to plug in the second monitor at any point.
