Fullscreen Apps Multi-Monitor Issue

Post by Spirrwell » Wed Sep 11, 2019 2:26 pm

Hi there!

I'm running Cinnamon 4.0.9 (though version isn't super important here) I'm sure plenty of people have already brought up issues with fullscreen apps/games (specifically with Steam Play\Proton) not going on the primary display in a multi-monitor setup.

I know why this happens (for me anyway). It's because of the bottom panel/taskbar. This same issue happens on GNOME when using Dash To Dock. If I turn on auto-hide, my fullscreen games will launch on my primary monitor no problem.


My question is, is there any fix for this issue outside of enabling auto-hide? I don't particularly like auto-hide, but it's the only thing I've found that fixes this for me so far.

I appreciate any help or information! Thanks!
