openLP using LibreOffice shows PPT slides on wrong screen
I've just done a new install on a new machine to try and resolve this issue and still have the same problem:
OpenLP using Libreoffice (5.2.2) to run PPT or ODP slides (no powerpoint or powerpoint viewer installed).
Extended desktop all appears fine for OpenLP song use, BUT when I set the PPT running the two displays are wrong way round. I get the slides on local monitor and presentation manager on projector.
Here's what I've done to try and fix this, without success so far:
Open up libreoffice and ensure the correct output display is selected (Display 1). Test the PPT from within libreoffice. OK.
When running again from OpenLP same error. Then when i go back to libreoffice I find Display 2 is now (wrongly) set; OpenLP (I think) is forcing libreoffice to change this setting each time it tries to play the PPT. Every time I reset it within libreoffice if i play it with OpenLP it resets it to wrong display.
I have toggled on and off:
'Bypass X11 Windows manager'
'Allow presentation application to be overridden'
and within libreoffice toggled on/off the 'presentation manager'
and tested all combinations of the above three(!) makes no difference.
'Identify displays' (on this desktop Nvidia card) shows: HDMI O/P is the projector, as 'Display 1'; DVI O/P is the users' monitor as 'Display 2'. I have ensured display 2 is set as the Windows 'Main Display'
I guess if I got some DVI to HDMI cables I could switch the display cards' outputs to be inverted??
Can OpenLP only get the presentation working right now if the projector is recognised by the hardware as 'Display 2'?? This feels like what's happening.
This used to work fine before newer versions of OpenLP with the same hardware (or perhaps it's libreoffice!)
THANKS for any help - and this excellent piece of software!
