I think this is likely to be a bit more specific to your particular
setup than a general 'there's one magic trick to make it work with more
than 2 monitors' thing, so if I were you I'd probably file a bug with
all the usual information for your specific configuration and see where
But the main thing I wanted to say is, the change in F25 is only a
change of *defaults*. For many reasons, the proprietary driver case
being a major one, there is still a GNOME-on-X11 session choice in F25
Workstation installs. It's just not the *default* choice any more. So
you can certainly still use the proprietary driver with F25 if you
want; just switch from the default session to the X11 session in GDM
when logging in.
