I have this problem with Ubuntu 17.10. Unity (17.04) didn't have this problem.
Asus Zenbook Flip: I work primarily in 2 locations. I have large monitors at each location. When I'm at home, my notebook is positioned to the left of the monitor. I have configuration set for that. When I get to the client site, the notebook is on the right of the monitor and the monitor is bigger than the one at home. After having my home settings active, gnome does not remember my client setup and vice versa. I expect the configuration to be restored the moment I connect a previously set up external monitor, the way it was working on Unity. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Desktop Packages, which is subscribed to gnome-shell in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1292398 Title: Second screen position isn't saved from one session to another Status in elementary OS: Fix Released Status in GNOME Settings Daemon: Incomplete Status in GNOME Shell: Confirmed Status in Ubuntu GNOME: Confirmed Status in Ubuntu GNOME trusty series: Confirmed Status in Ubuntu GNOME xenial series: Confirmed Status in Ubuntu GNOME Flashback: Confirmed Status in Unity: New Status in gnome-settings-daemon package in Ubuntu: Triaged Status in gnome-shell package in Ubuntu: Incomplete Bug description: (Noticed on Ubuntu 14.04 beta 1 GNOME) At work I have a second screen, which I prefer to virtually put on the left side of my laptop screen. Using gnome-control-center I can change the position of the second without problem. But when I disconnect the second screen (to work on another place) and then connect it again OR if I just power off the laptop and turn it on again, the second screen position is set back to the default right position.
