If you are using Geany under *nix, with a GUI that supports sessions
(kde, xfce, maybe gnome), you can do the following:
1. Patch geany for x11 session management - see the patch tracker.
2. Don't Quit it, but logout (shutdown, restart) instead. The sm will
save your configuration in a separate .conf file.
3. Using Quit, or Edit -> Preferences -> OK / Apply, will save your
current settings in geany.conf - including the "local" ones.
Hope this can be somewhat useful to you.
