Make the screen primary

Post by Skalman » Mon Dec 04, 2017 3:27 pm

Hi!
I have an extra "extern" 24" screen connected to the laptop running LinuxMint 18.3
When I config the screnes, size, pixels and so on, the external screen gives the option to make it "primary" but the same thing for the laptop doesn't exist.
And the 24" screen act like if it was the primary one.
How to fix this?

This issue is connected to the one about the icons move after restart. If I have not connected the extra screen the icons stays where they should.
Someone who can explain this?

See the
viewtopic.php?f=208&t=258218
and

Thank you.

"Solved" Re: Make the screen primary

Well folks....it is the primary, and there is no need to change it to the primary.........
When you "cold" start the laptop the construction of the laptop itself thinks the extra "big" screen is the primary until it founds the settings. For normally use in a office people want to use the bigger screen when connecting the laptop.
So......this was a "non" problem and I'm sorry making trouble. :oops:
