Changing the default monitor (not just the user default)

Hi Guys,

I have this annoying little issue with Gnome3/Fedora 16, hoping someone can help.

I have a dual monitor set-up, the second being a TV and as such isn't always set to display the PC output.

The problem is that the TV is currently the 'universal' primary monitor, so while I'm watching TV and decide to boot into fedora I have to switch to another display mode on the tv to log-in, then switch back to whatever display mode I was using previously.

So basically I need a way to either, 1) Make my actual monitor the universal default, not just User-profile default OR 2) Change the screen that the Gnome login is displayed on.

All help much appreciated!

I have a similar problem where a CRT has become the default universal monitor, and I wish to change the default universally, not just per user.

Sorry, but snagging someone else's thread to help solve your problem's not permitted. Also, since the thread's nearly two years old, it's not a good idea.
