Question Dual-monitor: GNOME 3 window placement


Hello.

I'm running GNOME 3 over Debian Linux on dual-monitor setup. I've already placed the "bar" on the connected monitor (turning it to primary), but my browsers and some other apps keep opening on the laptop monitor (that is, at this moment, the secondary).

What do I have to do to tell GNOME to open all applications/windows on a specific monitor?


I've made a video to show you what's happening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ub8aF07mx8Q

Applications used: Iceweasel (opens on wrong monitor), Calculator (opens in primary) and Transmission (opens on wrong monitor).

if you can modify your application launcher than you can use "wmctrl" to move applications around desktops once they are started.

I would like to fix it "natively" on Gnome configuration. Is there any way of doing it?
