[Linux] Multi-monitor problem

Question

When I first started the game on my PC (see specs below), PoE started correctly on my main monitor at 1920x1080. However, subsequent runs have resulted in the game running at the wrong resolution on my secondary monitor (actually, a 720p TV.) The TV is positioned on the left side of my desktop, and the 1080p monitor is on the right hand side. The TV displays the lower left quadrant of what appears to be 1080p resolution.  The mouse also doesn't appear to be properly calibrated to the screen, though I can tell which button the game thinks the mouse is over by the glow around the button. I *can* go into display properties and completely disable the TV in Display Configuration and have the game display properly on my monitor, but that's a hassle if I just want to run a game.

 

Specs:

 

OS: Kubuntu 15.04 x64 (KDE 5 Plasma Desktop)

CPU: i5-3570K @ stock speed

GPU: XFX Radeon 5750 1GB (w/ fglrx driver supplied by Ubuntu repository)

Motherboard: Asus P8Z77V LK

RAM: 16GB DDR3-1600

Hard drive: WD 500GB Green

Monitor: Viewsonic VA2446 24" 1920x1080

TV: LG 32" 720p

Found an unpleasant workaround. Installing PoE in WINE and running the game in a window seems to be the only way to get it to run on my main monitor. Getting there was a pain. Every time I change the graphics settings in the Windows version of the game, it crashes. However, next time I start the game, it opens with the properly selected graphical option. With the Linux version, I can't even run it in a window.

 

However, this also gets around the annoying Linux bug where the camera centers in the lower-left hand corner of the map after area transitions.

 

That said, I'm enjoying the heck out of the game.
