Hi guys,

I have a serious annoyance with mplayer (mostly). No matter what I set the window or application settings to mplayer opens in the far top left of my multi-monitor desktop.

I have a 24" Acer on the left and a 34" 21:9 Acer on the right. It's quite a long way to move the mouse to retrieve the window and pull it back onto the main monitor and it's bugging me.

Asides mplayer, my Dolphin window insists on opening full screen and refuses to remember that I resize it down to a more normal size each and every time I open it. Even when it occasionally opens on the smaller monitor it opens at the large monitors full screen size!

I know KDE 5 has multi-desktop/multi-monitor issues, but does anyone know if these are being addressed or if there are any fixes / work arounds?

I want it back to the way it was before, in that whichever screen was last active (clicked/focused) is where the new window opens. Is this too much to ask?

Thanks,
Back to top
