I have Ubuntu 16.04 running on a HP Desktop with two monitors. The launcher is currently located on the left edge of the right hand monitor which is very inconvenient. How do I move it to the left edge of the left monitor?

I am able to move it to the bottom with:

gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Launcher launcher-position Bottom

But I would like to move it to the left edge of the left monitor.

  • The ancient bug report says fix released, and OP says it didn't help, so I don't think we should be closing this against that

Go to System Settings > Screen Display

Find Launcher placement and select the display you want to put the launcher on.

Other than that you could personalize your unity interface with Unity Tweak Tool.
