I have a laptop with a built-in screen and an attached monitor.
When I start a Google's video Hangout and share my desktop, I would like to be able to share only the attached screen, but I don't know how.
Right now I have two monitors:
LVDS1 corresponds to my laptop's screen, which is configured as the secondary screen and
DP1 which is my primary screen. But the problem still remains if I change my laptop's screen to be the primary screen.
$ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3286 x 1468, maximum 8192 x 8192 LVDS1 connected 1366x768+1920+700 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 194mm 1366x768 60.06*+ 1024x768 60.00 800x600 60.32 56.25 640x480 59.94 VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) HDMI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) DP1 connected primary 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 475mm x 267mm 1920x1080 60.00*+ 1280x1024 75.02 60.02 1152x864 75.00 1024x768 75.08 60.00 800x600 75.00 60.32 640x480 75.00 60.00 720x400 70.08
Whenever I start sharing my desktop in the Hangout, only the built-in (smaller) screen is shared. Best thing would be to be able to chose which one to share, but if not, how could I share only the attached (bigger) screen?
I bet Google's Hangout is looking for a configuration file to choose which screen to share, but don't know which file it is.
Using Fedora 20, x86_64, Linux 3.15.10-200, GNOME Shell 3.10.4-8, Firefox 31.
Using Google Chrome makes Google Hangouts share both screens at the same time instead of only the laptop's screen, which I think is even worse. Still trying to find out how could I choose which screen to share.
