I'm using Gnome3. I would prefer to keep using it.
I noticed if I take Firefox out of full screen and move it to the second monitor, then close it, open it. It will launch automatically on the second monitor. If I move it to the second monitor then maximise it to full screen, close it. It always reappears on the first monitor. I couldn't find any settings dialogue for this either.
It just seems strange how it will stay on the second monitor if it isn't in full screen.
If there is no way to fix this, I guess I could wait for future releases of Gnome, maybe this will be changed in the future. I've read a few people having this issue.
Also about one monitor on each video card, is there any way to fix it?
I guess it doesn't really matter that much, but I'll probably want one monitor on each card for when I use Windows for games. I'm also thinking about going to a triple monitor setup in this case. It seems that it is just Gnome3 that has this issue, just looking for a way to get it to work with Gnome.
I'm currently just using Linux only, I did a fair bit of customising and some time to get most stuff working.
I don't know if I should ask this question in another section, but is there an easy way to back my Linux partition and restore it? Is there some imaging process?
I've used DD to back up disks before but never an OS partition, can DD be used for this and how can you restore it? If I use DD to back up my Linux partition, can you do something like boot to a live Linux disc and restore the DD image from there? I also wanted to check if I can back up all the Yum packages I've downloaded, I wanted to install Linux on another machine, to save some time I was going to create a local repository and update this other machine with using a local Yum repository. Is this possible? Do the packages stay on disk after they have been downloaded and installed?
Thanks so far for the help
