I have a dual screen configuration (see attached xorg.conf) configured
with the "ATI Catalyst control center". It works fine.
When I am at work I use both monitors, my built in laptop screen and an external 1024x768 Compaq LCD. When I
start thunderbird it starts immediately and shows me my one and only configured newsgroup news.grc.com fine.
When I am at home I only use the notebooks built in LCD 1680x1050. When
I start thunderbird via the KDE start menu it shows shortly in the
control bar but then is gone.
Doing a "ps waux | grep thun" shows me, that it is running/hanging
The program is not on the second screen and invisible. The GUI is not
Btw. I always use it on the primary screen (the builtin notebook screen)
and never moved it to the other.
I had this bug a long ago and went to kmail because of this. Now I thought Thunderbird would work for news
and it did. As I found out now the problem (with mail and news) is the second screen missing.
I hope you could solve this bug. It prevents me from using Thunderbird.
