Real simple to fix this problem below:

First > Open Terminal = Ctrl+Alt+Del > Run the Command Below !!!

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install wmctrl

Now copy the >Script< below (in blue) and save to a text document. Now name the text document (xbmc.sh) Make the file executiable by checking the permissions box in properties. Now place this file in a folder and call it (Custom) and move to> Home. Now right click on Main Menu/Z-Button > edit > Sound and Video and uncheck the old XBMC Laucher ect. And create a new custom XBMC launcher > Browse to > home > custom > xbmc.sh for Command Shortcut. This will run your XBMC on a second display in fullscreen mode. Don't forget to run in the terminal first before proceediing = sudo apt-get install wmctrl

Code: Select all

  NAME='XBMC Media Center'

  while [ -z "`wmctrl -l | grep \"$NAME\"`" ]
      sleep 1

  wmctrl -r "$NAME" -e '0,1280,-1,-1,-1'
  wmctrl -r "$NAME" -b toggle,fullscreen
