I have a dual monitor setup but they are not homogeneous. My main monitor is like 24inch at 1920x1200 at 16:10 and my 2nd monitor is at like 23inch at 1920x 1080. The 2nd monitor is also plugged into a 2nd graphics card slow on my r9 270x while the main is like r9 280x.

The problem, my main monitor is mostly covered with a black box but if i right-click >display>arrange display , and slightly change their positioning and apply it will fix the problem mostly likely. Here is an image of the problem (you cant apparently see the black part but as you can see only the main screen shows partially at the bottom.

I tried to restart and kill the x server but to no avail the same problem persists. Any suggestions? I dont really want to install proprietary drivers as i heard they conflict with the new wayland system i know nothing about but would like to try :).
