I really have no idea how to do it properly.
In old angband, I used a file x11-settings.prf but that does
not seem to work.
How desperate are you? You could write a script that invokes steamband
and then figures out the process and resizes using wmctrl. I wrote a
funky script to create emacs and terminal windows and move them and
resize them at startup. I could give it to you, but it's a bit beyond
suitable for a beginner.
Hmm- that approach probably won't work without more effort. When I
start steam and maximize and ^R, I get a crash. If I increase the size
manually to near maximum, then ^R does not cause a crash.
Perhaps the best solution is to use multiple desktops, and leave it
enlarged on its own desktop, and only close it when you reboot.

The executable has to be run from the dir above src to find
the assorted dirs where it expects to see them.
Alternatives are to copy it up or create a symbolic link.
ln -s src/steamband
Of course no need to change anything if it's working for you.
