View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unity not saving monitor layout (15.04)

Hey there,

So I've discovered recently that my computer will not save the multi-monitor layout that I desire. It works just fine for as long as I'm logged in, but when I reboot, the system reverses the order that I would prefer (I have my laptop on the right and monitor on the left, the default is the laptop on the left and monitor on the right).

This is a fairly new install of Ubuntu 15.04, on an older computer (my newer computer is being fixed right now, its motherboard failed). It has an Intel GMA 4500 graphics card (2009 Core 2 Duo), if that helps.

The easy solution would be, obviously, to swap the monitors physically, but that's impossible due to the design of my desk. Any ideas how to fix this? I remember it working correctly in previous versions of Unity.
