    Forcing a program (Tux Maths) to run on one display

    Hi,

    My kids really like playing Tux Maths. But we have two monitors, and instructions appear right slap, bang in the middle - making them difficult to see.

    Can anyone tell me how to force a program to run only on one monitor? I can't see any settings in Tux Maths itself.

    Cheers

    don't think there is a way, as a work around is needed to stop full screen flash from doing the same in chrome...

    I don't think it is possible either. I have seen that a few times with various things. The only way I know is to drag the text box across to one or the other by hand after it appears.

    Cheers both, at very least that's stopped me wasting any more time breaking my head over it.

    I'll find a workaround. If worst comes to worst, I'll install Ubuntu in a VMWare machine on a Windows PC. Bit of a faff, but he does love Tux Maths.

    Thanks again!
