Thank you for the rapid response. I am running Ubuntu Linux 12.04 LTS.
Ideally I would like the "Main" window minimized and the "OpenGL Display"
in a specific location on the screen. If I position and resize a
gnome-terminal window in the exact location of interest I am pull info on
its position and size:
[ ~ ] LAPTOP $ xwininfo -id $(xprop -root | awk
xwininfo: Window id: 0x425f2df "test"
Absolute upper-left X: 716
Absolute upper-left Y: 52
Relative upper-left X: 0
Relative upper-left Y: 0
Visual Class: TrueColor
Border width: 0
Colormap: 0x4200005 (not installed)
Bit Gravity State: NorthWestGravity
Window Gravity State: NorthWestGravity
Backing Store State: NotUseful
Save Under State: no
Map State: IsViewable
Override Redirect State: no
Corners: +716+52 -0+52 -0-0 +716-0
