http://askubuntu.com – I am running a system running Ubuntu Oneric where i have a DVI monitor and an HDTV as my screens. They are set up using nVidia TwinView. The monitor and TV are not side by side and the intent is to drag movies to the TV and then full screen it. The problem is that windows often open on the TV which I cannot normally view while sitting at the computer. What is the simplest way to tell unity to open windows on a specific monitor exclusively? Note that I have only 1 HDMI connector so swapping the cables for the TV and the monitor is not an option. Note: It is not always opening in this way bu (HowTos)
