    Hi folks,

    There must be a simple way to do this - I want launch an application from the command line or a script and have it appear in the secondary display in a dual monitor set up on a Mac Pro system.

    I have played around with the DISPLAY variable with no success. Every time I launch the app, it appears on the primary display.

    Is there a way to do this?

    What app? Most programs will reappear in the same place as they were when you quit them.

    We are using a movie application called RV from Tweak Software. I'll double check, but this program always seems to restart in the primary display even if it was exited from the secondary display.
