View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dual monitor problems - sometimes secondary monitor has higher priority

April 8th, 2010, 08:19 AM
Hi all,

Have a dual monitor set-up as TwinView. My right monitor is the primary monitor plugged in the video card, the left monitor is the secondary one plugged in the video card. I can't swop those two over due to the layout of my desk - the primary monitor is a lot better quality than the secondary. Anyway, the loading screen comes up on the secondary monitor, then the log-in screen is on the primary, but the loading screen comes back up on the secondary after logging-in. Then some programs when opened always comes up on the primary, some always comes up on the secondary, some comes up randomly. Most dialog boxes comes up on the secondary. This is getting really annoying - I'd rather have everything up on the primary and let me drag it over to the secondary if I desire. How do I set it up that way?

Thanks very much for your time in advance!
