I have convinced my father to leave windows and I have replaced the old PCs with two new computers with aptosid.
Apart the problems of environment I have a problem that is driving me mad Mad
A computer has an integrated intel video card, i have installed firmware non-free for secure.
I wish that I add the second monitor shows a second Desktop/Activity/X Session.
The two screens should be independent of the other but the main monitor can switched to another in order to change such as the video advertising or other.
I am doing tests on test, I can do something only with activity but when I switch, switch both while should not happen.
This I can do this by setting the second monitor that is right the other.
How can I do?
The aim would be to have the second monitor a video advertisement or open other programs controlled by the principal.
If it's a desktop or a activity or an X session I do not care that addresses the important thing is XD

What you want to achieve is not very clear to me.

Anyway, read "man xrandr" for start,
(in case you don't use proprietary graphic driver).

I have read the aptosid manual, i have a intelintegrated graphics integrated video card.
I want to make a 2 monitor indipendent with two desktop or two x session, the main monitor must be able to see the other.
with xrandr i can make a only big monitor splitted in two while i don't want this.

I don't understand yet. 8(

Now, if your two monitors on same PC shows two x sessions, then, when
you press a keyboard, or you move the mouse, which x server should respond?

(... actaully, I used quingy for some time, it opened another xsession on
another tty... on framebuffer. I could have two xsessions, one KDE/fvwm, etc.,
one awesome/fluxbox/openbox, etc... with one monitor. In this case, PC knows
which tty is current, so keypress and mouse were redirected to the session...
I could even have extra X session while in init 3... )

I can see one solution... you put two monitor in one X session, (dual monitor setting)
then in one, you login as another user with "ssh -X"... you don't get another "desktop",
but you can run X applications as another user, on separated monitors...

The manual tells you using dual monitor with one x-session.
I wrote the suggestion, ssh login with -X option in terminal.
and you asked how to configure it, I understood "it" means dual monitor,
and told it's on the manual.

If it is not what you meant, I don't understand the communication... 8)
If "it" does not mean my suggestion, then I don't know any other solution, sorry.
-- you didn't even answer my question about key board and mouse input...
