You've closed bugs as duplicates of this one that DO provide very specific
information.  Maybe your method for closing bugs as duplicates should include
copying useful information into the ticket you consider to be the "main" ticket
(like this one).

I realize a lot of the KDE developers consider this ticket to be a nag and
dislike having to have the functionality requested.  It appears a lot of users
DO consider ability to specify a --geometry to be useful.

As I've discussed elsewhere I'm asking for the ability to start up a mix of
applications such as konsole and other utilities I've written in a given layout
from something such as a shell script.  There have been suggestions about using
the pre placement capabilities where I can specify a few things for a single
app.  These typically can't be edited by hand to configure the window locations
and are hard to adjust/transfer to other machines.  I used the --geometry
functionality to do this -- starting with the X window systems I was using on
Sun 2 and Sun 3 boxes 25 years ago.

You are the assignee for the bug.
