-geometry flag

I made gftp too big by resizing, and although I could see the title bar when I made it that big, the next time it started I couldn't. I tried the -geometry flag but it didn't help. I made sure I was typing it right by trying it on gvim and it worked for that. Does geometry only work on certain apps? And what is the command to make it start up say 1 pixel from the left of the screen and 1 pixel below the top of the screen?

It all depends on the commandline options are 100% universal.

Usually you can get the options by using a help flag such as --help or -h or -help.

In the case of gftp there is no geometry flag, but you can edit various dimensions in ~/.gftp/gftprc

You can also try using Mod1 (Alt) key and drag to move/resize. If your window manager supports it, left drag to move and right drag to resize.
