Re: [opensuse-factory] App startup screen 1,2

Hi Patrick,

2017-02-15 0:35 GMT+01:00 Patrick Shanahan <paka@xxxxxxxxxxxx>:

I have done some remodeling and moved my computer equipment to a different
location where my secondary large display is on the left rather than the
right. Why don't applications that always opened in the primary display
now want to open on the secondary?

It has to do with the fact that the screen (0, 0) coordinates is the
upper left corner.
When you add a screen the existing windows are keep at the position
they where before.
So if you have a window at, say, (1, 1) and you add a screen on the
left (or on top),
the window will be moved to the new screen.
New windows open somehow relative to the overall (0, 0) coordinates.

I went to configure desktop -> display and monitor
and set the primary as dvi-i-3 and the app correctly shows the difference.

Is there another setting besides setting every individual app?

[assiuming that you use Plasma5]
This bug [1] suggest some solution for newly opened windows.
Martin Graesslin also explains this a bit [2].
This other bug [3] instead is about maintaining windows in their original
when a new screen is attached. Related to the bug there is a kwin script [4]
(I haven't tried it though, partially because of the name...)

I have resolved the issue adding stuff like projectors to the right of
the primary screen.




Tks, I will look into these.
