I am using KDE on Debian Jessie.

Whenever I open an application, it appears on the first (left) screen. How do I change this?

This happens with most applications. For example Vuze opens correctly on the monitor it has been before, but Double Commander (doublecmd) which I use heavily doesn't.

If it matters I have 3 screens. Left: FullHD TV (HDMI) + middle: QHD monitor (DisplayPort) + right: FullHD laptop display.

  • Usually they open wherever your mouse is. Do you see something else? Aug 8, 2015 at 5:35

    That depends on the window manager or desktop envitonment you're using. Which one do you use? Aug 8, 2015 at 5:43

  • @Wouter Verhelst I use KDE environment and window manager's name is KWin Aug 8, 2015 at 6:19
  • @wouter-verhelst I'm using fluxbox. Of course it depends on the window manager but that didn't even occur to me as i think my other window manager does this as well. Aug 8, 2015 at 7:03

I found that only a handful of applications, including Double Commander, does show up on the non-primary left screen, on which mouse cursor is not. That would suggest an error in those applications, rather than a problem with window manager settings. I will contact such developers.
