I have a number of different boxes, all running debian and xfce. When I launch multiple applications (specifically xterm windows) on one machine, they end up all in the center of the desktop, and they are laid out next to each other on some other machines.
I prefer them to be put next to each other when I launch them.
... but I haven't been able to figure out if and where I can configure what happens. Reading this makes me think I should be able to set an appropriate option - but what is it?
Note: On the particular box that annoys me by launching each xterm window right in the center of the desktop, mouspad (the editor) gets launched in all four corners of the screen (better than center, but not as good as the windows being next to each other).
