Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I use torsmo to display a lot of information - the date and time among other things. It displays text information directly on the desktop. Here is a screenshot of it next to the E workspace switcher. I also use the Firefox datetime extension to display the time in the right of the Firefox status bar (getting crowded there now ).
I am not aware of a way to set the location and geometry from .torsmorc but if anyone else can show me I would be very happy. I launch torsmo from my .xsession file which also launches lineakd and my window manager, so I have the location set there on the torsmo line.
The "wtf?" lines indicate you have something fishy in your .torsmorc on the lines 53 and 55.
Well, one problem I fixed, there is no more "WTF?",
but there is still question about positioning torsmo on the desktop.
If I type in Xterm -> torsmo -a top_left -x 165 -y 695 then It is positioned correctly,
but when I put such record in my .xsession file then I've got only "top_left" and "-x 165 -y 695" left ignored !
How you set the location ?
But have'nt you noticed something strange in window manager behavior?
I use enlightenment 17 and after torsmo start I can see some artifacts,
application windows sometimes don't redraw until I place another application window on them and remove!
That is really strange maybe it is connected with "own_window yes " option in .torsmorc file?
