Description Rolle 2012-01-24 08:47:43 UTC
Description of problem:
I have 2 Monitors enabled. When I start LibreOffice the splashscreen is centred between the two monitors. I think it is disadvantageous, because it looks not very nice, when the splashscreen is splitted between the two monitors.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 16

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect 2 monitors
2. don't activate the clone-mode for the monitors
3. start LibreOffice
Actual results:
The splashscreen of LibreOffice is centred between the 2 monitors (splitted  between the monitors)

Expected results:
The splashscreen should appear only on that monitor (only on one monitor), where the application is afterwards displayed.

Additional info:
It's not a bug, it's cosmetic design.

Suspect this is a LibreOffice problem - haven't seen any other reports of Mutter placing things over the crack between monitors.

Comment 2 David Tardon 2012-01-24 15:25:52 UTC
Yes, the (new) splash screen did not take into account xinerama info. It is definitely fixed in 3.5 and possibly in 3.4.5 . The fix is relatively simple so I will backport it if it is not.
