Thanks to this question, I've managed to get Terminator to open at a particular size, with the right configuration of child windows.

However, they don't open at the size/position that they were in when I saved the layout.

Edited To Add: The layout portion of my config file contains lines like below. The first part ([[[child0]]]) is the main window, while [[[child1]]] is one of its children (as indicated by the parent = child0 line). Changing the number in the line that reads position = 1237 has no effect that I can see.

    position = 27:29
    type = Window
    order = 0
    parent = ""
    size = 1052, 1853
    position = 1237
    type = VPaned
    order = 0
    parent = child0

I've tried adjusting the position = NNN lines in the childN sections, but to no avail.

(As a bonus question, if they aren't there to set the size of those windows, what are those position lines supposed to do, anyway?)

  • I'm not sure what values the position and size settings take, but for me, they look like: position = 0:27 size = 1920, 478 for a window that stretches the full width of my 1920x1080 monitor, and is located at the top right-corner (oddly, even though I've given 1920 as the width, it shrinks to fit the space left by Unity's fat Launcher).

    Yes, that's what they look like for the main window, but for the child windows, I just get a line like: position = 600. It doesn't seem to do anything, though.
