  virtual display memory too small, primary display resolution incorrect

Status in xorg package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Occurs when adding a secondary display to the system. Both screens
  have been set to there standard resolution. When applying changes the
  following error message occurs:

  required virtual size does not fit available size: requested=(3600,
  1080), minimum=(320, 200), maximum=(1920, 1920)

  I am looking to create an extended desktop. The system does not pick
  up on all graphics cards properly, i.e. does not recognise the two
  secondary graphics cards. It seems like the system is attempting to
  create one screen width wise and two screens vertically based on the
  size of the "requested" display compared to the actual requested size.

  The main monitor should be 1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz and the second monitor
  that is being added should be 1280x1024 @ 60Hz.

  The primary monitor, with secondary turned off looses 45mm of screen
  space widthwise and 26mm screen space vertically. It is centered the
  display is 24 inches from bottom left to top right.

  It would be first a benefit to get the secondary display working
  regardless of display size.

  When reducing resolution of the secondary display as much as possible
  it will accept the changes but display the secondary desktop in a
  small box embedded into the desktop on the primary monitor.
