Default Re: start an application on another screen using Twinview

the easiest way in KDE is probably to right click the window title, select "Advanced" -> "Special Window/Application Settings" and create a rule that'll set the initial position of the window to some coordinates on the desired display.

or you could run the application with the --geometry parameter.
