I have 2 monitors, (screen 1) is a 32 inch westing house monitor, (screen 2) is a 15 inch hp L194OT monitor, screen 1 is connected via a hdmi cable, while screen 2 is connected via a vga with dvi adapter.
My operating system is a linux mint 16 kde 4.11.5
My graphic card is a
Card: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Pitcairn PRO [Radeon HD 7850]
My computer specs are a quad core processor made by asrock or asus. not 100% sure anymore.
i have 8 gig of ram with 1 terabyte hdd.
With that info put here is my problem
Screen 1 is on top of screen 2
i want the desktop portion to be on screen 2 while a blank wallpaper thing to be on screen 1. as well i would like to use xinerama or something along the lines of xinerama where i can move windows from screen 2 to screen1. and visa versa
as well I would like to be able to run steam games without steam doing a segmentation fault

I can use vent, skype, mumble, teamviewer, teamspeak, steam voice chat, whatever necessary ill get it.

Which desktop environment are you using? Also, can you try to launch steam through the terminal and then, if it segfaults, post the output here?

I had a problem with steam segfault, too. Disabling Xinerama and setting your desktop to be a multi-display desktop. Unless you need multiple desktops displayed at once. Sometimes completely reinstalling the driver also fixes it.
