Remember window positions in Cinnamon or g3?

Postby gzchetco on Sun Dec 09, 2012 4:44 pm

Is it possible to set Cinnamon to "remember" window positions on the desktop from the prior session or the last time an application (gedit, firefox, nemo) was opened/closed?

Thanks for any ideas!

I'd be interested in this as well as the current behavior seems like a regression since mint 13.

Applications are either opened in the top left corner or in fullscreen.

I'd like this option too, gnome 2 did this perfectly but since gnome 3 this seems to be either not implemented or hidden somewhere in the config.
If someone has a solution it would be handy.
If it ain't broke - fix it anyway!

I installed devilspie and gdevilspie.
Of course you have to name each application you want to handle. Mine, in particular, were Firefox and Thunderbird.

Here are my settings/files:
firefox.ds
; generated_rule firefox
( if
( and
( is ( application_name ) "Firefox" )
)
( begin
( unmaximize )
( center )
( geometry "1289x876+79+24" )
( println "match" )
)
)

thunderbird is the same except for the name and application_name

Modify your Startup Applications to include:
devilspie -a

Then logout and login.
That should do it.
Hope this helps.
