Configuring DECwindows Multi-Head?

» close window

The Question is:

How do you configure CDE for mulitiple head workstations ?

The Answer is :

  The baseline hardware configuration involves simply installing multiple
  (identical) graphics controllers.
  The OpenVMS Wizard prefers to use DECwindows Motif for multiple-headed
  configurations, as DECwindows CDE and its desktop design tends to assume
  a single head is present -- customizations to the background menu and
  explicit specifications of SET DISPLAY and such are required for use of
  the second head.
  With DECwindows Motif, the file DECW$MWM_RC.DAT is used to set up the
  menu available on the displays.
  To control the orientation of the displays and various attributes, please
