    Smile Every time I log in, the log in password prompt appears on a different screen.

    Hello,
    I installed Xubuntu a couple of days ago. It's working fine.
    My question is why does the log in prompt appear on a different screen each time I log in? I have 3 screens.
    I have set my center display as my main one already.

    But that isn't the first step. In the first step it says how to create that file using another tool. Did you do that?
    I don't have nvidia stuff on my systems anymore (as of about a month ago) and I don't have 22.04 with xubuntu either, so I can't try it myself.

    The path needs to read like:
    Code:
    ls '/home/me/.config/monitors.xml' 
    /home/me/.config/monitors.xml
    Or
    Code:
    ls ~/.config/monitors.xml
    Don't copy mine it will break yours:
    Code:
    cat '/home/me/.config/monitors.xml' 
    <monitors version="2">
      <configuration>

    Sorry for the drive by, and you need to set your monitors first in "Settings" then copy it over,.... it looks like you just picked what you wanted, and did not follow it completely. All details matter.
