I’m using F36 with Wayland on GNOME. I can successfully set my primary monitor (and this persists). However, some applications open on the wrong monitor and I need to move it to my primary monitor. I do not experience this same issue on X11.
Also have this issue, it’s pretty annoying. It also seems to always be the same applications that decide to open on the wrong (secondary) monitor. E.g. System Monitor always opens on the secondary monitor.
Maybe worth noting, inside my Display Settings, my Primary Display is actually the monitor marked as the second one. Is there a way to change this? Might be related to the issue.
Hey @ilikelinux, thanks for the response! The correct monitor is set as the primary monitor. What I’m referring to is the “number” of each monitor. Notice how the primary display is a monitor with 2 on it.
My issue is that even though I have 2 set as the primary display, some applications will always open on 1 for some reason. I was just theorizing that maybe the number has something to do with it, even if it’s not set as the primary monitor.
I swapped the DP cables and the numbers readjusted, then rebooted after deleting monitors.xml. Now it looks like this, which makes a bit more sense:
Unfortunately that did nothing, the same applications still open in the other monitor, regardless of what monitor has focus. For example, System Monitor always opens on the secondary monitor, no matter what I try.
