Hey, Mike, thanx for your reply.
I'm using blender, and I need the nVidia drivers in order to use the GPU
for rendering. I was also hoping I could use my dual screens and wacom
tablet at the same time. So far I made a small script using xsetwacom,
but it fails to recognize my monitor (DP-0). I'll try to map it to
coordinates instead of a monitor. Thanx.

Will send the solution (if I find it) for other user's sake.
