I would try to do it from the command line first, using xrandr. You can put all 
desktops left, right, up, down of each other, overlap, rotate, reflect 
sideways, upside-down, inside-out, and whatnot...

When you sort out the options that make it work as you wish, you can put it in 
~/.login or /etc/rc.local or whereever...

man xrandr
