Ruby-gnome/gtk and Positioning?

Not sure if this is the proper place to ask for a ruby-gtk/gnome
question, but in case its not you’d surely tell me so. :slight_smile:

The question I have is, that aside from the constants like POS_NONE
(Example Code: main_window.set_window_position(Gtk::Window::POS_NONE) )
is there any other way to specify the precise location of a GTK app?
Specifically I’d like to place it at “top left” corner upon startup
of the ruby application, but I cant seem to be able to do
exactly that.

For quick reference, only 5 constants seem to be possible at:
http://ruby-gnome2.sourceforge.jp/hiki.cgi?Gtk%3A%3AWindow#Position

Thanks for any help-pointer in advance.

I apologize for what appears to be a digression, but I have been having
terrific success with the Qt library and Ruby, and I can position a
desktop
frame wherever I please. I just looked at the GTK class description and
it
appears that you cannot specify a particular window position.

You are asking the wrong layer. The window manager has the final say in
any and all window placement. You can suggest, you can cajole, but you
can never demand, unless you have a way of talking to the WM directly.
