Thanks for the help so far.
Maybe I wasn't clear enough (finnish is my native language).
I have my screens enabled already etc, can't drag windwos to eachother as
said, and I know that too.
My point was that I'd like to bind one keyboard to one screen, but have
the one mouse jumping across as it is now. mouse cursor alone does change
screen just by going over the screen edge. my point here is that I could
for example play full screen game on screen 0 and still be able to write
IM with Gaim on another screen.
Current situation is that when I drag the mouse to another sceen, that
"session" becomes the one also having my keyboard.
I hope I make any sense to you?
