On Gnome Classic, Gnome Shell, and Cinnamon, this command worked to set the default desktop:
Code: Select all
xrandr --output HDMI1 --primary

Again, swap out HDMI1 for whatever other input you may have. This command will tell you the available inputs/monitors:
Code: Select all
xrandr

Add the first xrandr command (xrandr --output <OUTPUT> --primary) to your startup applications in Gnome/Cinnamon/Gnome Classic or add the xrandr command from my previous post for Xfce.

On KDE you can use the display settings to adjust everything, and clicking "Save As Default" saves it. KDM doesn't work with multiple monitors, however (although I haven't looked extensively enough into it or MDM).

xrandr --output HDMI1 --left-of LVDS1


All deserved cw. I'll get back to that guy on the ubuntu forums and link to this thread here.
He might even switch over to LM Xfce!
My desktop runs 64-bit Kubuntu 13.04, my htpc runs 64-bit Linux Mint Nadia Xfce, my answering machine runs 64-bit windows 7, and my laptop runs 64-bit Linux Mint Nadia KDE. Each seems suited to its purpose.
