How to preserve the login session's running apps without hibernation with Gnome?

+1 vote

When I was running mate on another computer, I would log off or shutdown, and power up and login again and mate would restore all the gui apps in all the workspaces.

Gnome does not do that.

Also, I do not have a way to upgrade to Centos 7 because
1. graphic installation fails (as I have posted here before).
2. I do not want to do text install because it will clobber my existing partitioning scheme and does not provide for modifying the automatic partitioning scheme.

When starting a program from the commandline in C5, is there any way to specify where on the screen the resulting window will be put?

I have a nuisance of a problem: Running rdesktop with the -D option (which hides window decorations, making the rdesktop window appear borderless), one cannot (as far as I can figure out) drag the window:
there are no borders to grab, and alt-drag doesn't work either.

it's always opening in a place that covers other windows, and I can't drag it away from there.

specifically: I want to run two instances of rdesktop, and it always plunks the second one right on top of the first one. since I can't drag either of them, I can't see them both at the same time. (I "carefully" configure each of them so they are the exact size of the physical screen, so that it looks like a real windows session, and also prevents me from casually/stupidly closing the entire RDP window by accident.) Since I have two displays, I'd like to place one of them on each screen, by itself.

In CentOS 5.10, if I have, say, an X terminal window up on my screen, the next time I log in, it's there when I log in as an unprivileged user.

That's because I can save the layout the way I want to; there's a checkbox for it to save the layout upon exiting.

I see none for CentOS 6.5. So, my X-terminal isn't there when I log in each time.

I can't find a way to start gpk-application from modern Gnome desktop. It's nowhere to be found in Activities. Typing "software" brings up nothing. Of course, the brand-spanking new Gnome in F20 apparently feels its too cumbersome to list all installed applications, like in earlier versions. gpk-application runs fine from terminal.

Is there some way to create launchers on the Gnome 3 Classic Mode panel, as was easily done in Gnome 2?

I'm trying really hard to like Gnome 3 Classic Mode, but having a very difficult time of it, because it seems to only provide a superficial resemblance to the Gnome 2 desktop, without actually providing comparable functionality.

I recently submitted a crash report using the gnome-abrt application/applet and would like to file a comment to it. Which bugzilla did gnome-abrt submit it to? I had assumed that the gnome-abr user interface would tell me, or I would get an email from the bugzilla; but neither has happened.
