hi all,

first i just want to thank everyone for all their help recently, you guys are terrific!!!

i also thought of another question for y'all

i found a sessions gui in gnome control center that allows me to add certain programs i want to run on startup, and when i added gnome terminal it works well. anytime X starts (or gnome I guess) a terminal starts in the top left corner of the first desktop.

so here's my question. there must be a file somewhere i can edit with more options, ie where on the screen i want it to appear, how large the window should be, which desktop i want it on etc. etc.

does anyone know where this file is or what the options would be??

thanks in advace,

What you want doesn't depend on gnome, it depends on the window manager. Some wm's allow what you want, for example sawfish, but others don't - I think metacity is one of them.
