I upgraded an old Dell notebook from 15.10 to 16.04. It went very well. Congratulations to the upgrade process developers! I do have one minor issue - not sure if it is related to the upgrade or just a “feature” of 16.04 which I do not know how to handle.
The computer is dedicated to use as a jukebox in my workshop. I have converted my music CD library to .mp3 files and I use the computer to play them through some amplified speakers. I have the computer setup with a low privilege account which automatically logs in upon startup. I have Audacious media player and Caja (pointed to the head of the .mp3 file directory tree) set under preferences to load at startup. All of this works fine after the upgrade. Except…
Originally Audacious would load in a window occupying the left half of the screen and Caja would occupy the right half of the screen. Following the upgrade Audacious still loads in the left half but the Caja window opens overlapping most of the Audacious window.
Is there a way to instruct Mate where to position a window on application startup?
