no, it doesn't.
how? well, opening a new window on an empty dekstop always opens it in
the top left corner.
the relevant section of rc.xml:
<!-- 'Smart' or 'UnderMouse' -->
<!-- whether to place windows in the center of the free area found or
the top left corner -->
<!-- with Smart placement on a multi-monitor system, try to place
on: 'Any' - any monitor, 'Mouse' - where the mouse is, 'Active' - where
the active window is -->
<!-- The monitor where Openbox should place popup dialogs such as the
focus cycling popup, or the desktop switch popup. It can be an index
from 1, specifying a particular monitor. Or it can be one of the
following: 'Mouse' - where the mouse is, or
'Active' - where the active window is -->
i also tried commenting out the other options, so it looked exactly like
you suggested, but no change.
actually i remember i was complaining about this earlier, and dana
jansens confirmed it.
i also vaguely remember someone saying that the development branch has
re-implemented this feature.
can someone make further comments, suggestions, confirm, deny?
