Question How do I start gcalctool in the center of the screen?

Is there any parameter for this? For example
gnome-terminal --maximize
starts Terminal fullscreen. I want to start calc in the screen's center so I won't need to search it on the display every time I run it. It'a annoying.

Arch Linux, Gnome.

I don't use gnome, But I have seen a lot of apps, That use a -center command in their Fonts setup.

It makes me wonder if there might be a similar hidden command somewhere, Have you tried experimenting with generic commands like this?
