How do I make applications remember "their" monitor?

Post by outdoorart »

I'm running two monitors and I haven't discovered how to make the desktop (gnome) remember which monitor to use for which app (e.g. I want firefox to always open on the right hand monitor).

How do I do this?

Doesn't setting up a workspace do that
right-click gnome panel>Add to panel
  • Window List
  • Window Selector
  • Workplace Switcher
--any of those work for you ?

Same selection (applet) for Gnome panel
  • Run Application
--possibly in combination with above window selection choice ..

Save a session, might also work..
