Has anyone in arch-land figured out a way to position termite (terminal) using any of config.h , .Xresources, .Xdefaults .bashrc or something similar. It is a pain have geometry deprecated…
What window manager? If you’re using openbox you can define a per app setting for termite.
I’m using dwm these days…
Do you mean you want termite when opened to be at a certain size and position on the screen?
Yes… currently I can specify the window size (say 600x600). What I would like is for the terminal (termite) window to appear a bit off the window edges. As it sits it’s pegged top-left it appears at 0,0.
Found this patch
See how it goes
I found this as well…
### **[marnout](https://github.com/marnout)** commented [24 days ago](https://github.com/thestinger/termite/issues/590#issuecomment-702111352) • A work around is to use xdotool : 1. create a file, say left, in your $HOME/.local/bin (make sure it is in your path) : `cd ~/.local/bin` `echo "xdotool getactivewindow windowmove 0 0 windowsize 950 1019" > left` `echo "bash" >> left` 2. Make it executable : `chmod +x left` And now start termite with : `termite -e left` termite will start with width=950 and height=1019 Another work around is to replace the main function in termite.cc by this [main.txt](https://github.com/thestinger/termite/files/5313319/main.txt) And use `termite -w 950 -h 1019`
If you just want a small hack for termite it would be easy to add a check to the window rule function.
@natemaia I think that may be over my pay grade… (skill level)
Will dwm recognize a geometry specification? Maybe @manyroads can try xterm with a geometry specification first.
