And you would manually select launching a program on to the :1 display. Hard to explain except with shell commands;

DISPLAY=:1 libreoffice &
DISPLAY=:0 firefox &

It may be @jiyong is correct, the 4096 x 4096 apparent limitation may be a software limit. Quite reasonable for a laptop, until you add in an external display.

Anyway, I don't know the answer to this issue.

I do want to remind people that as far as the Pinebook Pro goes, it's early days. The PBP has been out maybe 6 months. We finally have lots of Linux distributions' support, the Wiki is coming along good and we now have many tested and known to work peripherals. Unlike the "big boys", our PBP is a community driven project / product. So, we are the ones to figure it out, not like the "big boys" do before they release a product.

Having to manually send each program to the monitor would be a pure hassle, but thank you for elaborating.

I have full respect for it still being as you say, early days for the PBP. All in all, I think everyone who is working with it is doing and have done a great job so far. Its really a wonderful little computer, even if I can't use it with my 21:9 screen.

If it is a software limitation, could there maybe be a fix for it in the future?
Are updates for the PBP served through apt with upgrade or how does that work anyway? I just installed regular debian, but unsure how fixes specifically for the PBP are served.
