Hi everyone,
   I have multiple monitors and I've reversed the primary monitor. On startup, my login screen stays on the other monitor (but if I move my mouse to the other screen it follows it). On Ubuntu LTS (what I was running before this) there was a fix to copy the monitors.xml file to another location and it would be fixed, but I've noticed that that file doesn't exist here. Any ideas?

This is the fix from Ubuntu:

Ubuntu uses Gnome and GDM, we use XFCE. So try:

Code: [Select]
/etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf
Code: [Select]
active-monitor = 0
reboot, and/or try another number other than 0 until it's set right.

Boom. You got it. Thanks so very much! My active monitor had to be 1, though. :)
