I have three monitors. I want games to open on the middle screen.
Everything was working fine, until the update of KDE that introduced “screen priorities” instead of having a primary display. Since this update, games never open on my middle screen, but instead on the right screen. This is, until I shuffle the order, and change it back to my desired order.
Xrandr shows the right screen as primary. If I do
xrandr --output my_middle_monitor --primary, games also open on the correct screen, so this is definitely the issue.
Setting the computer to sleep, or rebooting it, resets the setting.
Did you change the “active screen” settings?
I don’t see an “active screen” setting. Where is it?
Sorry was trying to remember what it’s called now. It’s inside workspace>window management
you can mess around with the window behaviour options as I know the setting used to live there. Worst comes to worst you can add a window rule under “window rules” that will open everything in the specific monitor that you want.
window class: unimportant
window type: Normal Window
and then add the property called “screen” and enter in the corresponding monitor number
Forgive me if I don’t have the details right as it has been a while since I’ve done this. Might need to do a little trial and error on your end.
No, I didn’t change anything there. And I also don’t want everything to open on that monitor, I just want it to set as primary.
