I am running Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon 64 bit on a laptop with an Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060. I am extending the desktop to an external display and am having an annoying issue. Every time I attempt to maximize the current window on the secondary monitor (currently the laptop monitor) the maximized window snaps to the primary monitor (the external monitor). Is there a way to maximize the window on the current display?

  • This actually appears not to be an issue with Mint but with nVidia and HDMI. – cirrusio Feb 23 '17 at 23:41
  • So, what I have found is that there is actually an issue with dkms - when the kernel is updated, I need to rebuild the display driver. Still not certain why... – cirrusio Sep 28 '17 at 21:56
