That means you have the same desktop stretched over both screens? The
code to do that would simply be putting the window at a proper x/y
position (using QWidget::move()). There's also QDesktopWidget, which
knows how many screens you have and how large they are so thats where
you can probably find the right coordinates.

If you need to do it without code, then I suggest to use KWin's "special
window behaviour stuff". Right-click the titlebar and choose "Advanced",
there you can choose either "special settings for this window" or
program. There you can set its position to a fixed place.
