I have two monitors attached to my Linux machine (one stereo-capable, the other not). I want to set up my system so that I can see the Workspace in stereo on one monitor, and the Project Table on the other. Is this possible?

This is possible, but requires some additional software. If you set the graphics card settings to "separate X screens", you can install xinerama to recombine the two X screens into a single desktop. You must set up xorg.conf with the following options in both screen sections:

Option "Stereo" "3"
Option "AllowDFPStereo" "YES"

and in the extensions section, set

Option "Composite" "Disable"

Make sure that the Workspace is displayed on the stereo monitor, and drag the Project Table to the non-stereo monitor.
