Not sure why it changed with 4.11, other than something about - Initial support for enumerating display devices. in the release notes.
Wine has always been kinda buggy for me tho, as wine desktop/fullscreen and whatnot ALWAYS starts at point 0.0, which for me is my left monitor, even tho my center one is the main one.
Anyway.. I have great success using "devilspie2". You should see if that is available for your distro and use that, cos you have loads of customization there. I tend to use it when running "wine desktop" as 1920x1080 (same resolution as my monitor), and use these settings in my ~/.config/devilspie2/wine.lua:
Code: Select all
app_name = get_application_name();
if app_name == "Default - Wine desktop" then
set_window_geometry(1920, 0, 1920, 1080);
That way, the wine desktop will open at my center monitor
EDIT: You can ofc use any "window name" tho eg. "if app_name == "Notepad.exe" or similar. Just create separate .lua files for each app.
