Re: [opensuse-factory] App startup screen 1,2
Patrick Shanahan composed on 2017-02-14 18:35 (UTC-0500):

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's not clear what your complaint actually is.

In my previous thread post, Firefox opened in the logical left display, on top of auto-reopened Konsole at screen position 0,0, regardless which was primary. I made no attempt to move Firefox off of Konsole after opening it, leaving it positioned where it opened.

Testing now in TW/KDE3 instead of TW/Plasma, using
xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --primary --mode 1920x1200 --output HDMI-1 --mode 1920x1080 --left-of DVI-I-1
Konsole auto-reopened where left open, logical left (0,0). Firefox opened initially at 0,0, but after moving its window to the logical right screen (1920,0), then closing, it reopened where closed at logical right (1920,0).

I closed FF, then restarted X using
xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --primary --mode 1920x1200 --output HDMI-1 --mode 1920x1080 --right-of DVI-I-1
Konsole auto-reopened on logical left (0,0). Firefox opened where closed, on logical right (1920,0).

I closed FF, then restarted X using
xrandr --output HDMI-1 --primary --mode 1920x1080 --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1920x1200 --left-of HDMI-1
Konsole auto-reopened on logical left (0,0). Firefox opened where closed, on logical right (1920,0).

I closed FF, then restarted X using
xrandr --output HDMI-1 --primary --mode 1920x1080 --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1920x1200 --right-of HDMI-1
Konsole auto-reopened on logical left (0,0). Firefox opened where closed, on logical right (1920,0).

I closed FF, then rebooted, back to TW/Plasma, leaving X to auto-start in 1400x1050 mirroring mode. Konsole auto-reopened on logical left (0,0). Firefox reopened maximized. De-maximizing it moved to lower right corner. I moved it to upper right corner.

I closed FF, then restarted X using
xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --primary --mode 1920x1200 --output HDMI-1 --mode 1920x1080 --left-of DVI-I-1
Konsole auto-reopened on logical left (0,0). Firefox opened exactly where closed, with its upper right corner at 1400,0. I moved it to put its upper right corner at 3840,0.

I closed FF, then restarted X using
xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --primary --mode 1920x1200 --output HDMI-1 --mode 1920x1080 --right-of DVI-I-1
Konsole auto-reopened on logical left (0,0). Firefox opened where closed, on logical right to the right, upper right corner at 3840,0.

I closed FF, then restarted X using
xrandr --output HDMI-1 --primary --mode 1920x1080 --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1920x1200 --left-of HDMI-1
Konsole auto-reopened on logical left (0,0). Firefox opened where closed, on
logical right to the right, upper right corner at 3840,0.

I closed FF, then restarted X using
xrandr --output HDMI-1 --primary --mode 1920x1080 --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1920x1200 --right-of HDMI-1
Konsole auto-reopened on logical left (0,0). Firefox opened where closed, on
logical right to the right, upper right corner at 3840,0. Then I opened Konq. It opened on logical right screen in the vacant upper left corner, 1920,0. I opened 'kcmshell5 fonts', which fell in the middle of the logical left screen, mostly over Konq's right side. I moved it to the lower left of the logical left screen. I opened KCalc, which slammed against the vacant upper right edge of Konq on the logical left screen. I opened Kate. It jumped into the lower right corner of the logical left screen, overlapping the right side window decoration of Konsole but otherwise into vacant area. I opened SeaMonkey. It too landed in the lower right of the (primary) logical left screen. I moved it to the lower left of the logical right screen, closed it, reopened it, and it landed where I left it in the lower left of the logical right screen.

Not expecting GTK apps to behave precisely as QT/KDE apps would, I don't see anything to complain about.
