Sorry for delay, the work for which I am paid took me much more time
than I expected. Moreover the code was in Tcl/Tk, I had to find PerlTk
equivalent. Finally I found it in "man Tk::Wm". This is my small


use Tk;
# Main Window
my $mw = new MainWindow;
# Yo can also try:
# $mw->geometry('-50-150');
my $label = $mw -> Label(-text=>"Hello World") -> pack();
my $button = $mw -> Button(-text => "Quit",
                -command => sub { exit })
        -> pack();

In Gnome, the user screen does not include the top panel, thus
position +0+0 is below it. I do not know how Windows calculate the
screen coordinates. It may also differ in case that autohide is set
for the panel.

If I change the orientation of the panel to left (it took me half an
hour to find how to undo this change), position +0+0 is next to the
panel. If autohide is set, +0+0 is just below the hidden panel, it is
possible to drag the titlebar of the window.

If you manage to put your panel to a wrong place and its Properties
can no longer be accessed (as I did), open gconf-editor, find
apps/panel/general and follow the instructions in its window.
