I downloaded devilspie from extras in order to be able to control size
and position of my MetaCity windows on Gnome 2.16.
How do I set it up and use it?
locate returns 'doc' locations and '/usr/bin/devilspie'
When I run it from the commandline I get:
No s-expressions loaded, quiting
The README lists two locations for a configuration file, but none exists
there. Do I start by creating my own *.ds configuration file?
"Devil's Pie is configured by reading a number of files from two
$HOME/.devilspie/ and $SYSCONFDIR/devilspie (typically /etc/devilspie).
Pie will read s-expressions from every .ds file in those paths. Note
currently only the first s-expressions is parsed, but this will be fixed
shortly. S-expressions are familiar to most Emacs users and in the
limited use they have in Devil's Pie are trivially learnt by example."
OK. But where are the examples?
devilspie -? gives little help.
Where would I get a list of expressions like 'begin', 'set_workspace',
'geometry', or whatever to at least get started?
Googling only gives me a repetition of what's in the README file.
All and any help appreciated.
P.S. Does anybody have any ideas on how to fix gdmflexiserver -l see
