How to remember desktop position when closing+re-opening?

Postby pstein » Thu Jun 05, 2014 7:35 am

When I close the PcMan window and re-open it (later) then the window is always shifted to the left border of the screen.

How can I tell PcMan to remember (beside its size) the last position on desktop (and use it at next start)?

it's the window manager's task to position windows.
some apps give hints as to where they want to be put; i'm not sure if pcmanfm uses that, but openbox (lxde's window manager) can override this.
it's a setting in ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml, <applications> section (depending on your distro, the file is elsewhere but definitely in ~/.config/...).
there's also a gui app called obapps, if memory serves.
see openbow wiki for details.
also this site has useful info about lxde in general.
