I have an AMD HD6950 video card with the latest catalyst drivers installed on a 64bit Ubuntu 11.10 linux box. There are currently two 1920 x 1080 HDTVs connected but there will be four in the future, this card can handle up to six at once. My browser of choice is Google Chrome.

I need to have multiple browser windows open up in kiosk mode; one on each monitor after launch. Each browser window will also be a different web page address which are fetched from an Intranet.

What would be the correct setup in catalyst to accommodate this and how would I make Chrome open in each of the monitors as previously defined? I will try anything including working with xll, sessions or whatever.

The Compiz config settings manager has lots of options för window placement and such. Install it if you havn't already sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager.
Then go to: ccsm -> Window Management -> Place (plugin) -> Fixed window placement -> Windows with fixed viewport

nVidia's answer to this is the nView Desktop Manager - it looks something like this:

I'd take a look through Catalyst and see if ATi offers any similar options. If you can't find anything, it looks as though this may do the job: devilspie
