I have a laptop and a secondary screen that I use for most of my work. When notifications are displayed, they are only on the laptop screen. How can I get it to display on both screens?

Ubuntu 13.04


The best what you can do for the moment is to make that the notification position to follow the mouse-focus. You can do this from dconf Editor: go to appsnotify-osd and change the value of multihead mode to focus-follow.
