Ah. Now.

No, AFAIK only the NVidia binary only driver supports multiscreen
resolutions with a different size at the common edge. For this driver
it's pretty straight-forward to set up - though it probably isn't
supported by sax2.

You could try to create a desktop of size 2560x1024, which should work,
but you would have a bigger virtual resolution on the 16:10 screen (that
is, with panning).

Hope this helps
