I use Cygwin's X Server to access Cadence ADE L running on a linux machine.On my client there are 2 displays: 1 secondary (auxiliary) one to the left and a primary, main monitor on the right.Whenever ADE opens a new window, the new window appears always on the secondary monitor, in particular the top left of it.Probably because it's coordinate (0,0). This is very annoying and hampers efficient working: Each and every action has to be followed by dragging the new window to the main monitor again.
Does anyone experience similar problems?
Any ideas how to fix this?
You could probably use these two .cdsenv settings to control the position of the ADE L window:
asimenv.window x int 1 asimenv.window y int 317
Or from SKILL, these would be:
envSetVal("asimenv.window" "x" 'int 1)
So change the x and y coordinates to whatever works for you.
In reply to Andrew Beckett:
Thank you, that sounds really promising. Unfortunately it has no effect for me.
I quit Virtuoso, added exactly these lines (in front of everything else) to the .cdsenv file in my home directory (separated with tabs):
asimenv.window x int 1024asimenv.window y int 768
But once I start virtuoso again, the windows popup exactly at thesame spots: Secondary monitor, top-left (0,0).
Is there anything special to consider? tabs vs. spaces? Location of the file? Location within the file? Etc.
In reply to itos:
You should check they are not being overridden (maybe from your .cdsinit somewhere). I tried and this worked - but you can check by doing:
(and the same for y) to see what the values are in the CIW. You could also try setting:
envSetVal("asimenv.window" "x" 'int 1024)
in the CIW to see if that helps.
