I’m tinkering with a config as a work in progress and PositionPlacement seems to be erratic. In deperation I have added:
style * PositionPlacement Center
and many applications are centred. Some are coming up in arbitrary positions (e.g: SciTE, SMPlayer) but what is really surprising is FVWMButtons always turning up in the top left if no geometry is specified. Is this a known problem or is this intended behaviour? Am I likely to have done anything stupid?
I have an up-to-date arch linux system, which provides fvwm 2.6.1. I’m logging standard error but can see nothing appearing at the point when FVWMButtons is launching.
