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

Sorry, I don't understand..
In nvidia-setings, do you see 2 screen ? Can you arrange them ?
If yes, set as you wish and then save xorg.conf.
If not, I don't know :(

I didn't use "nvidia-settings", but nvidia-xconfig. And I used it w/o any
parameters. It generated an xorg.conf but with only a single display.
After your post I somewhat recovered my sanity and rtfm and then used:
nvidia-xconfig --separate-x-screens --virtual=1920x1080

which generated an xorg.conf which looked usable except for monitor
position which I edited by hand to "LeftOf" rather than "RightOf"

I just generated an xorg.conf using nvidia-settings and will test it. It
differs considerably from the other and does describe the relative
position of the primary display.

xorg.conf generated by nvidia-settings:

# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 375.39 (buildmeister@swio-display-x86-rhel47-09)
