Subject description: So it stays where I put it at next boot-up
 

I have the Sunbird calender in my Startup file (/root/Startup/sunbird). It appears on my desktop whenever I boot, in the left top quarter. I want it in the right bottom corner. How do I anchor it there so that it appears there on boot-up, without me having to move it there manually each time?

Hi Jake- looong time!

Position the calender to your liking then open a terminal leaving the calender uncovered and type: xwininfo

Move the cursor on top and left-clk, you'll get a geometry reading down below.

Take the info and place it in your /root/.Xdefaults file.. like: sunbird=geometry 710x550-23-44

Refire X. This works aboard Lucid..

Thanks, Semme. Didn't work the first time, but I'll play with it some more when I get a chance.

I'm not sure whether there's a bearing but- you're running *which* window manager?

If Openbox, it's possible screen position happens elsewhere.

With time (later)- I'll need to boot in and take a look..

Let's see what's inside your Xdefaults then. Attach a copy or post the contents..

I am running X, I think. Here's what's in the Xdefaults file:

Code:
!Rxvt*keysym.0xFF50:\001
!Rxvt*keysym.0xFF57:\005
! but urxvt in quirky etc needs these...
!Rxvt.keysym.Home: \033[1~
!Rxvt.keysym.End: \033[4~
! broomdodger reports this works in both 431 and quirky (rxvt and urxvt)...
Rxvt.keysym.0xFF50: \033[1~
Rxvt.keysym.0xFF57: \033[4~

!Rxvt*menu: /root/.rxvt.menu
Rxvt*saveLines: 1000

urxvt.foreground:#000000000000
urxvt.background:#f8f8f8f8f8f8
urxvt.underlineColor:#ffff00000000

! fonts
! run "fc-list" for a list of available fonts
urxvt.font: xft:Nimbus Mono L:style=Regular:pixelsize=18

urxvt.geometry:80x25
urxvt.scrollBar: True
urxvt.scrollTtyOutput: False
urxvt.scrollTtyKeypress: True
urxvt.secondaryScroll: True
urxvt.saveLines: 1000
urxvt.cursorUnderline:True
urxvt.cursorBlink:True

urxvt.transparent:Off
urxvt.shading:85
urxvt.borderLess:Off


I haven't figured out how to code the reference to sunbird, with its "geometry".

Jake, I've been away'n busy. Wary runs JWM by default. This being said, I haven't yet found a solution..

I am still messing around with this. Semme's suggested line:
Quote:
sunbird=geometry 710x550-23-44
in .xwindefault doesn't seem to cut it. I also tried
Code:
sunbird.geometry:709x395-7-34
, but that doesn't do anything either. I wonder if this has to be coded in a different way, but I can't find any suggestions in this forum.
