I'm using Unity 3D. At the time of writing the e-mail, i could get
xbmc, virtualbox, thunderbird, software centre, synaptic and a couple of
others to maximise, but shotwell and chromium were the two notible
Didn't think of trying a different login, so i tried one of the (many)
test logins i created when i was debugging the Unity 3D upgrade bug and
came out that it would - with one major difference, that the launcher
was on both screens, not just on the laptop like on my main username.
So i went back into my main user, went into display settings, and even
though it refuses to detect the second display, it let me turn the
launcher on and viola - it maximised in the second display! After
turning the launcher back off, it seems to work still (for now, will see
on next screen restart...).
I apologise for speaking too soon, but it seems to be (probably) a
compiz problem and not a shotwell problem, but thanks for helping kick
my brain back into gear on how to debug! Interestingly, even chrome
needs the same workaround if i move it to the second screen when the
launcher is hidden. At least i have one now!
