    Default bash/programs default open position

    This is more of a KDE question, but I cannot find the answer. I want to change the default start location of bash. I want it to form 4 equal area windows, dividing my screen into four, when I run bash 4 times. I also would find it helpful if I could create a script that opened certain programs/windows on system startup at certain locations on the screen. Perhaps we could sticky this as a tutorial, it would save a lot of people a lot of time.

    As a solution to the second part of your qestion you can always enable the option for KDE to restore last session at startup. This means that if you leave a program/bash open at a certain location at shutdown it will remain there at next startup. By default KDE will always start a new session at each reboot.
