For some reason I can't seem to find the answer to this. Setting "always on top" in the program's titlebar doesn't seem to persist after the program shuts down or the computer reboots. Please note that I do not use (and do not intend to use) XFCE sessions.


You could install and run Devil's Pie. I use it for controlling window positioning, which workspaces to open in, decoration, and many other features. Here's a great documentation for how to use it: Devil's Pie documentation

Also, an example to make gkrellm show on all workspaces, on top, in the top left corner:

(if (is (application_name) "gkrellm")
        (println "set gkrellm")
        (geometry "153x604-0+26")

    That's really cool. It actually may solve a few more "problems" for me than the one in the question, and it's in the Arch official repos. Thanks for pointing out a new toy. :) – user19866 Jun 23 '12 at 20:45
