Whenever I start a GUI application, the application window starts at the upper left of the screen. This is annoying, because I want them to appear at center. I pull them to the center but after quitting they again starts at their upper left position.

I want the window manager to remember the last position to be remembered. How can I do that? I am using GNOME 3.6.2 on Fedora 18.

Well, It is up to the program to store and restore the window position. So do you have a specific program that isn't doing so? – Dan D. Mar 12 '13 at 19:02
@DanD. I think they are ALL! But I have test with gVim, Emacs, gnome-terminal, gnome sudoku and nautilus. – Santosh Kumar Mar 12 '13 at 19:06
