I am on Fedora 19, and have a secondary screen hooked up to my laptop, works great, but I find I am often dragging the same apps across to my widescreen monitor after startup, as the apps open on my laptop screen.

How can I specify which screen to open an application on? And if the second monitor was not present, would the command default to the laptop?

Are the applications automatically starting at login or are you starting them? I find that applications that I start tend to open on the screen that the mouse pointer is currently on.
