I've tried starting a full screen application without a window manager, using xinit,
which works but instead of starting at the top left of the screen the application starts somewhere in the middle of my screen.
I've tried the same using a custom entry in /usr/share/xsessions
and starting that from lightdm instead
of the default ubuntu window manager, but that gives me the same result.
I am running Linux Lite 1.0.6. I seem to be having some trouble with xfwm4 (the default window manager), and would like to try a couple of others.

Open Nautilus (or Caja in MATE), on the menu bar, click on Edit then Preferences to open the File Manager Pref
