Game starts on wrong monitor
I have two monitors on my Linux box. I do NOT use Xinerama. My displays are :0.0 and :0.1. The :0.1 screen is left of :0.0. When I start Portal it always goes to :0.0, regardless of the screen I select in Portal's options. I have the Steam client on :0.1. Any ideas on how to get Portal to run on :0.1?

Why do you have 2 monitors?

Of all the possible questions that could be asked in an effort to be helpful, you're going to ask why I choose to have two monitors? That's really irrelevant to the problem. I'm not going to give up the second monitor, nor am I going to switch to using Xinerama to fix the problem.

I have found that this is actually a known issue that affects more than just Portal, although it's probably not a high priority one: https://github.com/ValveSoftware/halflife/issues/7

I can live with it as it is; it's just annoying.
