Description of problem:
It would be nice if sawfish 'remembered' the last size of a window and where the
window was positioned on the desktop. Maybe there could be options in the
window's pulldown menu like in previous versions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is an enhancement request.
We are providing sawfish "as-is" so closing all feature requests for it.
I would forward this bug to gnome.org for you, but I'm assuming the feature was
deliberately removed. You might want to search bugzilla.gnome.org or Sawfish
mailing list for previous discussion.
Call me crazy, but today I learned that I'm not using sawfish! It's been
metacity all along. Is there a way for metacity to remember the previous
position of a window?
Also there's a fair bit of discussion in firstname.lastname@example.org archives.
Short answer though is that it can't be implemented reliably without
some new conventions in the WM spec. In any case, 81802 on gnome.org tracks this
