I have a Raspberry Pi running Fedora 17. So far everything has worked well. What I want to do now is attach a displaylink usb monitor(mimo 720s) to it and use it as a second monitor, or the main monitor. Currently, the multi-seat feature, which is pretty cool by the way, sets it up as a new seat and session. This is not what I want to do, at least for this application, and I imagine performance would be, well, slightly less than desirable with a Raspberry Pi.

If one boots the Raspberry Pi with the HDMI display disconnected and the USB display connected, the login manager pops up on the USB display, but there is no mouse or keyboard associated with it. Plugging in the HDMI monitor at this point doesn't work, and, as far as I can tell, the only way to get back to a usable display is to reboot.

I have found almost no documentation on this multiseat feature or displaylink monitors since both are relatively new features and most people don't use either. I don't see any reference to either while using the gui. Can someone point me to documentation on multiseat or tell me how to turn it off and on?
