I am using newest Linux Mint 13 with Cinnamon with a dual-monitor setup (two 1920x1200 screens). The primary monitor is the right one, this is also where the task bar sits.
I have some problems with Window startup positions and windows "jumping" between monitors:
- When I open e.g. Mozilla Thunderbird, the animation seems to open it on the primary (right) monitor. However, immediately after the animation is finished, the Thunderbird window jumps to the second (left) monitor and stays there.
- When I open Chromium, the animation opens it on the right monitor and it stays there. However, when I click on the address bar to enter a URL the window immediately jumps to the left monitor. When I move the window back to the right monitor, it stays there, even when I click on the address bar again
Sometimes, there are other effects with other applications, but these two are always reproducible.
I am not sure what the expected behaviour is for opening windows. I would prefer when windows would always be opened on my primary (right) monitor but e.g. I think Microsoft Windows automatically opens windows on the secondary monitor if the primary monitor already has a Window and the secondary is empty. However, I consider it a bug when the animation is not consistent with the actual position of the opened Window and the problem with Chromium jumping when I click on its URL bar is just plain annoying...
Other than that, Cinnamon is absolutely great.
Any help greatly appreciated!
