I ran your latest tests from a liveUSB, as I wanted to see if the problem exists in a non-Ubuntu and it does. I installed Manjaro and whenever you start it up, the login screen appears on my HDMI TV instead of my monitor, despite my telling it the monitor is the primary. I think they programmed it making the assumption that all monitors are next to each other and always on.

Now to the results using Peppermint RC with liveUSB. If you think this is no use, I'll do a full install and try again:

Code: [Select]
lxsession-logout --display=$DISPLAY

lxsession-logout --display=:0.0

The above two same as before. The pannel appears in my HDMI, not in my monitor.

Just did a full install using the release candidate you gave me. Same behavior as above when the first two commands were run.

And this:

Hi Darclar

I have tried to keep up with what PCNetSPec is asking you to try but he usually leaves me scratching my head more often than not - it amazes me he knows so much.

Simple Q's.   
1.     What monitor is the panel displayed on?  DV-I-1 or HDMI-1
2.    With both monitors attached and switched on - if you use ctrl+alt+del to bring up the logout panel, which monitor does it appear on?

Mine will depend on which monitor I used last (ie I click left monitor and it appears on the left.  I click right monitor and it appears on the right.)

However, using the menu and clicking logout it will always appear on the monitor that has the panel displayed.   Regardless if it is labelled default or not.

Does this help you track down the problem ?   My system is similar to yours, except I use a display port and hdmi and both my monitors are always on with my main large screen having the panel on it.  So for me the logout screen always appears on my main monitor.   but I can make it appear on the hdmi monitor by simply placing the panel on that monitor.

I hope this helps somewhat and doesn't end up confusing the issue even more.
Keep trying, It really is worth it when you get up and running.

I had the same problem, I dunno if it's Peppermint 8's new function, but restoring the desktop theme was an instant success.
