I see. Well I just started Gnome in a Virtual Box VM after giving it 3 screens. I
do not see what you're seeing. Since this is a VM I can only run Gnome Xorg and not
Wayland. Do you know which you are running?
Also, the applications are starting at the size when they were last closed. So, if I
right-click on the menu bar of the app and pick Maximize it will start Maximized the
next time it is started. If I Unmaximize it, it will then start at whatever size the
window was when it was unmaximized. (Hope that isn't confusing)
FWIW, the sizes of my 3 screens are....
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 4936 x 1279, maximum 16384 x 16384
VGA-1 connected primary 2488x1279+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm
VGA-2 connected 1304x799+2488+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
VGA-3 connected 1144x796+3792+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
yes I am running Wayland and constantly resize each application which
starts in fullscreen because it takes all the screen space while I'm
happy to have 3/4 apps visible on my screen.
Screen sizes are:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 5040 x 1920, maximum 8192 x 8192
XWAYLAND0 connected 2560x1440+1280+237 (normal left inverted right x
axis y axis) 310mm x 170mm
XWAYLAND1 connected 1200x1920+3840+0 (normal left inverted right x axis
y axis) 500mm x 310mm
XWAYLAND2 connected 1280x1024+0+237 (normal left inverted right x axis y
axis) 340mm x 270mm
