Default launch application to second screen


I have a dual screen setup using a GeForce 6200 TurboCache and the TwinView option from the nvidia-driver. Everything is working fine.

Now I want to launch an application from script so that it starts on the second screen. Previous I used a xorg configuration with two screen definitions. I could use

DISPLAY ":0.1" app

to launch the appplication on the second screen. With TwinView this isn't working anymore. Can anyone tell my how to launch an application from CLI on the second screen?

Default Re: launch application to second screen

The point of Twinview is that you only have one logical screen (:0.0). There is no 2nd screen.
