I hope you can help me in this really painful problem.

When I open several pdf from firefox, Okular always appears exactly where I am currently working (trying to open new pdfs). This behavior is really annoying as I am forced to put the newly opened pdfs to the right side of the screen before continuing with my work.

I think it be really helpful to make Okular open either on a certain side (left oder right) of the active screen or in another (inactive) screen. Does anyone know how to do that?

I knew that Compiz can be configured to do that via CCSM, seems like KWin can do that too, even better.
