Icons always create on left monitor although the right one is set as primary

Asked by Jan Schwarzrock on 2016-10-17

Icons always create on left monitor although the right one is set as primary display. It happens with every configuration I tried. I'm currently running gnome-shell 3.22.0 on Ubuntu 16.10 (Linux XXXX 4.9.0-040900rc1-generic #201610151630 SMP Sat Oct 15 20:33:39 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux). Is this a bug or is this the right way how it is supposed to be. Because I didn't find any switch/setting to affect it.

Then you are using a PPA, and not the official packages for Ubuntu from the Canonical repositories.

If you don't use the official packages then results cannot be guaranteed.

All I can suggest is contact the PPA maintainer(s) and report the issue.
