Multiple Clients and Multiple Monitors

I wish to have 3 separate clients each run on 3 separate monitors respectively. In Windows this works just fine as the in-game settings have a monitor selection dropbox. In Ubuntu I am not seeing this same selection in the settings, and when I manually change the yaml file the Adapter property seems to be ignored.

Any other ideas on how I can run 3 clients simultaneously on 3 separate screens? I would prefer that this is something which can save the settings per account like other Eve settings are.

Same, the pre-launcher era was so great for that, three client in full screen on 3 different screens with different setting I use to have.

Well I got the windows to work properly in Windowed mode, but I never did get the Fullscreen Windowed mode to work.

I did not do is since they removed the ability to run exefile.exe directly.
I use to just run all of them in different Wine virtual desktop
