Dual-Head configuration

AHC hacked up the dual-head display. Read this as a starting point:


The changes are:

  • Add a "Virtual" section to /etc/X11/xorg.conf which is the size of the two screens; I believe this initialises the graphics system with enough framebuffer to handle the spanned screen
  • Add in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/45custom-xrandr-settings which runs xrandr to configure up spanning - "xrandr --output VGA --left-of TMDS-1"
