# Primary monitor work as always and second monitor only have one and fixed workspace
# I.e. you change to next workspace, primary monitor change to this workspace and second monitor remain as is.
# The desired behaviour is:
# Primary monitor and secondary monitor are linked workspace.
# I.e. you change to next workspace, primary monitor change to this workspace and second monitor too.
