How to open and arrange terminal windows automatically under CDE?

Hi, Is there a way to open and arrange terminal windows automatically under CDE? For example, I want to open and arrange terminal windows like this:

Code:
|------------|
| TW TW TW   |
| TW TW TW   |
| TW TW TW   |
|------------|

Thank you in advanced!

have a look at man page for xterm - look for -geometry option

something like:

Code:
xterm -geometry 90x60+0+0 -fg green -bg black -sb -sl 2000 -title "hello"

sounds like what you're after

You might also have a look at the tile utility. Source code downloadable from here: ftp.unixdev.net:/pub/debian-udev/pool/main/t/tile/

Simple, using style manager ( on the right of your CDE bottom menu bar )
click on it, then click on the startup key, choose return to home session, and click on "set home session"

Thanks everyone for your info.

I've just found the desktop is not CDE. It is called ' Sun Jave Desktop System for Solaris". I couldn't find Style Manager here.

Any idea?

Doesn't matter anyway. Neither CDE nor the Java Desktop System which is a customized Gnome desktop support the tiling feature you are looking for.
