How it done nowadays? I ask because I'm writing an application that has to
reseble as close as possible a fixed specialized device, i.e. a certain
while after the computer is powered on, the main window of the application
pops up at a certain fixed position. No user login, nothing. This works
except for the window placement, where the window manager (fvwm2) just
places the window anywhere at random.

Do I need to code options for this by myself or are there some predifined
options that handle this? It's a gnome project.


Plug-and-Play is really nice, unfortunately it only works 50% of the time.
To be specific the "Plug" almost always works.            --unknown source
