[RESOLVED] Position matchbox-keyboard

Tue Apr 04, 2017 12:15 am

I am using the matchbox-keyboard utility to provide input from a touchscreen display, but the system puts the keyboard at the top of the screen. I want it at the bottom. The utility is launched from a bash script. Is there a way to force the app to appear at the bottom of the display?

Edit: I used wmctrl to set the new position of the window.
