Anyone knows a program that's faster/smaller than yad, to display gui windows with text. More specifically what i need:

  • ability to control windows height/width
  • control over where window is displayed via xy coordinates
  • ability to change texts foreground/background

Yad is fine when i need to display few windows at once, but when i need to display +20, it becomes bit slow, plus its kinda overkill, with all those options that i don't need.

Thanks!

  • zenity is a more basic tool, but I don't think it can control where a window is displayed via xy coordinates. An even simpler alternative is a TUI (text user interface) with dialog. You can open xterm windows and run the dialog application in those windows. And xterm can control where the window is displayed via xy coordinates. – sudodus Mar 5 at 16:59
