I'm in a situation where my primary monitor is on my right and that is the screen with the Unity launcher. When I fullscreen an app, the edge that actually tiggers the launcher to reappear is on my left, on the screen that does not have the launcher.

Is there a way to fix this without moving the unity launcher to my left?

This is under Ubuntu 11.04.

Sounds like a bug!

The detailed multi-monitor design is being worked out now, for 12.04 LTS. You might want to take a look at the proposed design as soon as a draft is available. Check for news, or hop into #ubuntu-design to see if a draft is available.

Thanks for the info. Multi monitor support seems even worse in 11.10, hopefully it be functional in 12.04. – James McMahon Nov 19 '11 at 22:05
I'm happy to report that this works a lot better under 12.04. – James McMahon May 23 '12 at 14:59
