[Bug 1543345] Re: nautilus ignores the --geometry= positions unless sudo is used


Neither position nor size works for either user or sudo in the 16.04
alpha. for nautilus 3.14.3 (package nautilus 1:3.18.4-0ubuntu1 is
nautilus 1:3.14.3-0ubuntu1)  Package seems odd.  Running off persistent
ISO, but updated the nautilus package.

$ lsb_release -a

  nautilus ignores the --geometry= positions unless sudo is used

Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  In Ubuntu 14.04, patched to Feb 7, 2016, running nautilus
  1:3.10.1-0ubuntu9.10 , starting nautilus from a terminal using the
  --geometry=800x300+200+100 will ignore the '+200+100' positioning part
  unless sudo is used, in which case, the positioning is correctly used.
  The size of 800 pixels wide and 300 pixels tall appears by eye to be
  correct for non-sudo and sudo invocations of nautilus, but the window
  position of 200 pixels down and 100 pixels right is ignored unless
  sudo in used for the invocation.

  Non-standard kernel in use:
  uname -a
  Linux tosi 4.2.3-040203-generic #201510030832 SMP Sat Oct 3 12:34:31 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
