Bug Description

Gloobus preview is set to appear at the center of the screen, right? Well, this works well in a single monitor setup, but when using a second monitor, the window is centered relative to the whole width of the extended desktop, not the monitor where nautilus (and consequently Gloobus preview) is. All I want is to be able to preview a file in the laptop monitor without the Gloobus Preview window "overflowing" to the second monitor.

Ubuntu 10.04
Gloobus Preview 0.4.5 bzr r

confirmed using Ubuntu 10.04, x86_64, gloobus-preview 0.4.5-ubuntu4~ppa233, dual monitor layout using proprietary NVIDIA drivers with twinview.

Same here, nvidia proprietary blob, 10.04, etc: wrong position

I don't have 2 monitors to test it
if you have the possibility to compile gloobus preview from source, there is
a possible solution for this bug in this branch:

same problem here with Ubuntu 10.10x64, nvidia 260.19.21, two monitors, not built from source

Same problem, Gloobus appears on the far right side of my left monitor. When fullscreen is enabled, the bottom controls are split between monitors.

Same problem here. ATI x600 OSS drivers.

When selecting "Use gtk theme" the window appears fully on one monitor. Using default Mac-esque theme results in it centered on both monitors

I can confirm the posted branch works.

Scott, regarding using the Gtk theme: It seems to display even less consistently. In my testing, small images seem to appear centered, but wider ones still appear offset on the main monitor.

It can't seem to be compiled on Natty. It seems to require swfdec-0.8, which doesn't exist in Natty.

I'm wondering, is there some way to work around this using Compiz?
