How to fix the Cairo-clock desktop position at startup?

Hello everybody,

Could you help me to find the way to let cairo-clock right positioned at startup?

I tipically love the clock to appear in the desktop upper right corner but... everytime I reboot, the cairo-clock appear in the middle of the screen losing the right place "memory", and I have to replace it manually all the times...

I've tried with another clock, the screenlet provided one and I met no problem with this issue, but before to give-up and canging clock I want to try this last chance.

In the autostart menu I created a new item called "cairo clock" that execute the command: < cairo-clock > but I suppose there could be a better command to configure by passing also the desktop position coordinate.

Could you help me?

Thank you in advance

Go into your home folder--> edit--> Show hidden files. See if there is a hidden folder for the clock, it might contain a config file that you can edit to force the position of the clock.
