I have dual display configuration, and want all new and old applications start on primary display, which is on the right. But some apps start on second screen, regardless where focus/mouse pointer is. I think this is because top:left corner 0:0 is on second monitor. And its bigger then primary, can this be a cause?
Secondary is a TV where I run kodi, which have a setting to choose display.
May be there are some app what remember for every app position and display, and also take care when second is turned off – mean remember position until monitor is on again. In earlier versions of ubuntu compiz do that, but no more.
Update: Changed DE to cinnamon
