May be there is another algorithm to prevent starting second copy of
application in the same dipslay?


a very easy idea is to use a lock-file. Just create a file in
/var/lock/yourapp. And if you start the application see if that file
exists. The only problem is if your app doesn't close propper. Then
there's an lock file. But perhaps there're some good concepts to handle
this, because lot of apps do it this way.
