gnome-terminal location


Hello,

I know this is being completely lazy, but I'm setting up my desktop at work with running Ubuntu 10.10 with dual monitors. I spend most of my day in a terminal and I'm setting it up to run with the size I want, but now I would like to see if there is a way pass my desired location as well.

gnome-terminal --geometry=238x60

(yes, the monitor is running in 1920x1080)

I can't seem to find a way to give it some sort of x,y for location to the second monitor on the same workspace.

I think in GNOME it's up to the window manager to decide about the window placement. As far as I remember, the default Metacity doesn't offer an option to remember the window locations. Some other window manager might be able to do it if you really really really want this.

Code:
--geometry=238x60+x+y
Should work; where x and y are offsets from top left. I get it all setup and then take a screenshot and measure with gimp.

Thank you, barriehie. That is exactly what I was looking for. Worked like a charm.
