the -geometry also take positions. See below or you can google search based on this.


Code:
Windows can be placed in the four corners of the screen using the following specifications:

       +0+0    upper left hand corner.

       -0+0    upper right hand corner.

       -0-0    lower right hand corner.

       +0-0    lower left hand corner.

So something like this:
Code:
sherlock GNU/Linux$ xterm -fn 6x10 -geometry 96x24-0+0

I think "on top" setting can be set based on the windows manager you are using. I have never set it, but I am pretty sure it is doable from within the windows manager.

But alternatively you can try using this app and see it this helps

GNOME - always on top

I solved this mode:
I use Compiz and then:
ccms --> Windows Rules --> Above +
select windows title, point to windows you want set always on top and click it... so the windows title is captured in the Above .

It's all !
