I am using dual monitors and whenever one of my application opens a new window, it is always created in my secondary display instead of my primary display. I've attempted solutions involving Auto Move Windows and CompizConfig, but they all don't work in Ubuntu 20.04. Has anyone found a work around for this issue?

  • Anything about "compiz" is certainly outdated. – ChanganAuto Jun 17 at 20:40
  • Compiz is still usable on Ubuntu MATE. – N0rbert Jun 17 at 20:47
  • Please do not crosspost. See meta.stackexchange.com/a/64069/267099 – DavidPostill Jun 18 at 7:47
  • In Gnome Tweaks, there is an option "Center new windows" on the Windows tab. I suggest you try that option. Maybe this could help consistently opening applications on the same (hopefully the primary) display. Now, it is the "smart" setting that sometimes decides to open a new window on the other display. – vanadium Jun 21 at 7:18
