    [18.04] Multi display default settings - huge problems

    I installed Ubuntu 18.04. And multi display support is not good. Problems: - Login screen for password always goes to 2nd screen, never primary. - Icons goto 2nd screen, if you drag them back to primary screen, then disconnect 2nd screen, all desktop icons vanish from the primary screen onto the disconnected screen. I just don't understand how multi display support is implemented so horrible! Till so far I could not find any fix for it that actually works.

    i installed Kubuntu - similar issues - it just ignores the settings.

    try to set the secondary screen as inactive (i.e. deactivate it in settings). i got it all on primary screen then, however some applications still launch on secondary screen (no matter if it is plugged in or not) and disable the primary one.
    Easy to understand Ubuntu manual with lots of pics:
    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?
    Disk backup (works on newer PC): Clonezilla
