LEFT MONITOR: 19" LG flat panel monitor, connected via DVI/VGA. DVI Adapter goes into the GPU, VGA cable attaches to adapter, VGA cable connects to backside of the monitor. Resolution: 1440X900
RIGHT MONITOR: 34" Insignia TV connected via HDMI. Resolution: 1366x768.
The RIGHT monitor (TV) is set as the primary monitor both in the Nvidia-Settings but also in MATE's "Monitors" menu. this is confirmed here:
- Code: Select all
The issue, is that while MOST Applications open on the primary(Right/TV) monitor properly, SOME applications do not. Such as firefox, and there have been others but they are slipping my brain at the time of typing this. It's mostly friggin firefox that is annoying me to no end anyway.
They open, on the LEFT monitor, which I keep strictly for my weechat client, and or Terminals. It's REALLY annoying dragging windows over to the right monitor everytime I open certain applications.
To check if this was DE related, I booted into Cinnamon, and opened firefox. It opened on the RIGHT monitor. I installed Cinnamon flavoured LM, but later chose to install and use MATE instead. The fact it opens in Cinnamon but not in MATE, in the right monitor; leads me to think this might be a bug localized in MATE?
Consider this a bug report AND a Tech support help 2in1.
