I’ve only been using Fedora as my daily driver for a few weeks now, but I love everything about it. I believe I will be here to stay. I am still working out some quirks, though. Some maybe relevant info:
OS: Fedora 38
Desktop Env: KDE Plasma
Windowing System: Wayland
Kernel driver in use: amdgpu
Displays: 3x -
- 2560x1440 No rotation (Primary priority)
- 1920x1080 90° Clockwise Rotation (Vertical, secondary priority)
- 1920x1080 No rotation (Horizontal, tertiary priority)
The layout is like:
My problem is that I have left-docked panel on my primary display with a few widgets on it (Application Menu, Task Manager, System Tray, the like). When I open these widgets they “occasionally” (I can’t figure out any pattern to it) open the wrong way, leading them to expand on my vertical secondary monitor instead of the display the panel is docked on.
Here is a screenshot of the behavior:
(Note: The pink cat character is just a custom icon for the Application Menu widget).
This isn’t desired behavior, but I can’t figure out how to force the widgets to open on the correct display. The behavior isn’t consistent—When I log out and log back in, generally the widgets start opening on the desired display again, but at some point it shifts to the incorrect display and then I’m not sure how to reset it other than another relog.
It also does extra funky stuff sometimes like split the menu between both displays, for example here’s a RL photo of that behavior, making the Task Manager pretty tough to use:
If I can provide any other info or clarification just let me know. Thanks guys.
Edits 1-3: Clarifying stuff
Some stuff I’ve already tried:
- Re-positioning the vertical left display to different Y axis positions relative to the primary display, doesn’t seem to do anything.
- Undocking the panel in edit mode and re-docking it, also doesn’t help.
