Create Virtual Screen Covering Two Monitors

A few days ago, a customer asked me how to make two monitors act as one. To make this happen, Solaris has an option called xinerama, which allows the mouse and windows to traverse both monitors. The framebuffers must be the same type. Here's the syntax.

#vi /etc/dt/config/Xservers
:0 Local local_uid@concole root /usr/openwin/bin/Xsun :0 +xinerama -dev /dev/fbs/jfb0a -dev /dev/fbs/jfb0b -nobanner
