I have two screens connected to my computer. I want applications to start on the screen my mouse cursor is on. How can I set this?
I had wanted to do this myself. Here is what I found:
You may run into trouble with the behavior remaining unchanged unchanged in certain cases. This happened to me, but then I realized the reason: Smart output mode will place a full-screen application on a monitor with a higher resolution by default, even if the "Use output device with pointer" option is selected. To fix this problem, I changed the Placement Mode to Pointer. I also found that the other available options, like Centered, also achieve the result of the window being placed on the screen currently containing the mouse cursor. I recommend trying out each of the options to see which one you personally prefer (personally, I found that I like Centered the best). It seems that Smart mode is trying to be "too smart" for what I want, I believe that it assumes that one wants bigger windows to be placed on the higher resolution screen regardless of what other options are selected, which is not necessarily what one may want in many cases.
I hope this helps!
By default the screen with mouse cursor is chosen. If not it can be chosen from display settings in Ubuntu settings.
Just do following steps:
