You could do this with compiz.

  • Install CompizConfig Settings Manager from the software center.
  • In Window Management go to Place Windows.
  • Go to the Fixed Window Placement tab; in Windows with fixed placement click on New.
  • In positioned window type class=Evince. Set the position relative to the top-left of your screen.

In System -> Preferences -> Appearance enable visual effects.

I've been looking for something like this for quite some time, because evince was popping up on the other monitor-TV, not on the default monitor. And randomly, not with all PDFs. I hope this fixes the issue. I'll try it ASAP. Thank you! – medigeek Feb 23 '12 at 17:27
