sticky gkrellm


I would like to make gkrellm sticky under gnome, is there any way of doing this?

I would also like to determine a fix place for the startup...

[update] I've tried the gnome-plugin meanwhile, but it doesn't seems to be working on gnome2 [/update]

I use fluxbox and there i give it the gkrellm -w or gkrellm -o (-w for slit and -o for background prox), donīt know if this works for gnome...
If you use a graphic login, then in your home dir make a .xsession file, like:

#!/bin/sh
gkrellm -o
exec gnome (or whatever it is called)

I don't have gkrellm or gnome installed anymore, but I remember an old post I made about getting gkrellm to startup when gnome was started. And about making it sticky and where it will be on the screen when gnome is started.

To get gkrellm to startup automatically in gnome or enlightenment, click the left mouse button ( you might have to hold the ALT key down at the same time ) inside or on the border of gkrellm to get a drop down menu that has the ' Remember ' option on it. Then select ' Remember '. In the Remember window, select ' Restart application on login '.

Also, don't forget to select ' Sticky state '. This will remember gkrellm's sticky state when you logout. To make gkrellm sticky, get the drop down menu that you had before and find ' Sticky ' on it and click on it to make it sticky.

About making gkrellm come up on the screen where it was when you logged out, the remember location option in the ' Remember ' window doesn't work with gkrellm ( at least it did then, I don't know about now ). Gkrellm has its own option for remembering where it was when it was shutdown. Click the right mouse button ( you might have to hold the ALT key at the same time ) inside or on the border of gkrellm to get the menu that has the ' configuration ' option on it. Then click on configuration. Look for the option to remember where it was when it was shutdown and select it. I believe it's under ' General/options ' or something like that.

I hope this helps.
