I have a dual monitor setup where I have placed a 1280x1024 resolution monitor to the left and a 1920x1080 resolution monitor to the right. Internally it looks like Ubuntu (14.04) changes the total resolution to 3200x1080. So because I have placed the smaller monitor left, where the desktop's icons are oriented towards, the icons fall slightly off the screen. The 56 extra pixels ubuntu created at the bottom of my smaller monitor are filled with content, which obviously isn't visible. I have set "Scale all window contents to match" to the smaller monitor, but that didn't change much. Actually changing that setting doesn't change anything visibly or at least that I could see. So how do I go about changing how ubuntu handles this? Or should I always keep the bigger monitor (in height) to the left as a rule of thumb?
Added screenshot for clarity. For example file11 falls off the screen now.
