I searched google and the forums here (maybe my search terms are wrong). I have 4 monitors (under gnome-shell) and I am trying to figure out how to launch the game in full screen on a specific monitor.

 

Screens (from left to right):

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

 

Every time I launch the game it puts it on Screen 1. If I use the game to go into windowed mode to move the window and then back into full screen the window moves, but the mouse is stuck on screen 1.

 

I have tried the emulate virtual desktop option, which, while works does not actually put the game full screen on the monitor I want. I have tried fooling with all kinds of check box combinations under Configure Wine "Graphics" tab.

 

Can anyone lend some assistence?

 

Version of Linux: Arch 64bit

Version of POL: 4.2.5

 

Thanks

That is something that you will want to set on your distro. On KDE (what I use), it opens on monitor 1 (out of 5), because that is the main or primary monitor (or even just the first one that your card recognizes, which it sets as the primary). One thing you could do if you run KDE (or if you run something different, they might have an option like this), I can set up rules for apps and windows, so that when KDE sees a certain title or app run, it will apply special rules to that Window. There is no way to change that in Wine or POL. It is a Window Manager issue.

Thanks for the response! (As stated I am using gnome-shell). In this case it's NOT launching on the main (primary) monitor which is the problem.

 

I will investigate LightDM/Gnome-Shell to see if I can find an equivilent option as you mentioned exist in KDE

Yeah. Unfortunately, it just is not something you can really do anything about through Wine/POL. I don't know if GDM can do it, but I know KDM and LightDM can, so you may have some options for you, although you might have to edit some configuration files. 

Also, I know compiz has a LOT of features, including a bunch of stuff related to window management. It may be something to try (I think your setup is running metacity, if I am not mistaken). I would look into that before switching the others.
