Dual monitor pop ups issue

Post by tornskin » Wed Nov 14, 2018 6:50 am

Hello!

After doing some research I still experience a small but disturbing bug. My primary screen is on the right. Secondary one (hdmi TV) is on the left. All pop ups go the the left screen instead of main which is very frustrating. They are placed like this IRL as well (I've read that switching them in display settings helps) so I have been wondering if there is any solution to force pop ups on primary monitor.

Thanks and cheers!

Hello, can you please post the result of the following terminal command, and enclose it in code tags? That's the button marked </>.
This is needed for pretty much any question about your system, so it's a good habit to post it straight away.
