Rvu window? (moved from Radiance-dev)

Hi Marija,

This came up in July on the general list, and no one seemed to have a proper answer...

  http://www.radiance-online.org/pipermail/radiance-general/2004-July/001939.html

The window size is determined by the X11 window manager. Some window managers have preferences you can set for specific X11 clients, but I don't know where they live. Do you know what window manager you are using? (Hint: they are generally platform-specific, so if you tell us what machine/OS you are using, this would help.) Can anyone on the list offer suggestions?

likely the original question was asking for something like

    rvu -geometry 100x600-0-0 -vf abc.vf -ab 2 .....

"man 7 X" says:

GEOMETRY SPECIFICATIONS
       One of the advantages of using window systems instead of hardwired terminals is that applications don't have to be restricted to a particular
       size or location on the screen. Although the layout of windows on a display is controlled by the window manager that the user is running
       (described below), most X programs accept a command line argument of the form -geometry WIDTHxHEIGHT+XOFF+YOFF (where WIDTH, HEIGHT, XOFF,
       and YOFF are numbers) for specifying a preferred size and location for this application's main window.

whereas rvu says:

merkur $ rvu -geometry 800x600 -vf close.vf baugruppen.oct
rvu: fatal - command line error at '-geometry'
