Hi all,
I installed mutter in my gnome2 environment to get a feel of it. I am having problems with dual monitors. Can somebody help me? When I maximise any window, it spans across both monitors. This does not happen with metacity, but is a problem with mutter(metacity + clutter). I have intel corei7 Dell latitude E6410 laptop with nouveau driver and another monitor attached via VGA.

Here is my xrandr setting
Code:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3120 x 1050, maximum 8192 x 8192
eDP-1 connected 1440x900+1680+150 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 303mm x 190mm
   1440x900       60.0*+   40.0 
   1152x864       60.0 
   1024x768       59.9 
   800x600        59.9 
VGA-1 connected 1680x1050+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 473mm x 296mm
   1680x1050      60.0*+
   1280x1024      75.0     60.0 
   1152x864       75.0 
   1024x768       75.1     60.0 
   800x600        75.0     60.3 
   640x480        75.0     60.0 
   720x400        70.1 
DP-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP-2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

Hi...

I had the same problem. Solved it by enabling the xinerama USE-Flag.
