"the reason you can't drag windows from one 'head' onto another 'head' is (as
CarlF correctly commented) that your setup is in ""separate x display"" mode and not in ""xinerama mode"" (aka ""twinview in nvidia-land or ""bigdesktop"").

such a ""separate x display"" setup means, that each head can possibly run a completely different configuration regarding visual depth, size, framerate etc. thus, a window created on one head (the term is actually ""screen"") can not be savely moved onto the other head because the ""pixels do not match"".

checkout
