My environment is:

Code: Select all

user@user:~$ uname -a
Linux user 4.10.0-19-generic #21-Ubuntu SMP Thu Apr 6 17:04:57 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
user@user:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 17.04
Release:    17.04
Codename:    zesty


This script is my to older laptop. Where I has three screen. First screen is 22" Asus and second screen is 17". The third screen was turn off, because is of my laptop. On my new setup I have only two screen (Asus 22" and 17") and have this hardware:

1-https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/PRIME-B250-PRO/
2-https://ark.intel.com/products/97123/Intel-Core-i5-7500-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_80-GHz
3-SSD 120GB Kingston
4-Only two screen (VGA - 17") and (HDMI - 22")
5-8 Ram

But my output on ARanDr is: http://imgur.com/a/9HnqJ I think I have the "EDP-1" because on my script I configure the older screen corresponding the screen laptop. Even though I disable "eDP-1" my taskbar will go "DP-1" (and I want this taskbar on "HDMI-1"). I share with you a screen shot about my environment graphic: http://imgur.com/a/0tjrp The third screen, leftmost, I need disable, because I haven't this screen.
After disable this screen on "Screen Layout Editor" -> "ARandR" my environment stays like this: http://imgur.com/a/nF5UX. My question is: How can I put again taskbar on screen "HDMI-1", through script which I use to configure my environment.

Thanks
If you can't understand some step please let me know. I will try explain again the best way I can do!

don't use sudo to create files in your $HOME.
that's just the first thing that is really wrong with your script.
fix that, and fix your $HOME also.
then post a fixed version of script.
maybe we can help then.
