XnviewMP + 2 monitors

Post by eol3000 »

Hello
I have Manjaro Linux KDE and 2 monitors. XnviewMP installed from AUR repository.
When I open any image in full screen mode it always opens on my left monitor which is not main. It is old, has 4:3 aspect ratio and it is supportive. I need to see full screen on my main big monitor, but i can't do it. I didn't find any suitable option for this in options.
Slideshow also opens on left monitor and there is no option to fix it. Or maybe I can't find it.
Please help me if it is possible. And sorry for my bad English.

Hi there, just an idea: in Settings under View>Fullscreen have you un-checked "Dual monitor: Use second monitor"?

Hi, thanks for the answer. Yes, it is unchecked. I tried to check, and uncheck this option, but there is no effect.

I forgot to tell one thing, and it may be important. I use wayland, not X11.

On archlinux (arcolinux) with xfce4 on 2 monitors (laptop + monitor), xnview window ends up on various screens and even partially outside screen, when zooming or opening new window?

Irfanview + wine behave normally. It seems like xnview enforces its rules on window manager and the result is random behaviour.
