@Roman: with de debug level i see that the plugin is loaded. 

but, because the regular pd-console is small and i was loading Gem at

i didn't see the error message in the console about the execution of the

wrong # args: should be "wm geometry window ?newGeometry?" 

as a try i took away the = from the =500x800+0+0 parameter in the

-> start Pd: no error message and the dimensions were changed, not the

fiddling with the input for the x and y did not give any positive

putting back-in the = 

-> startPd: same result  as without ! 

my intermediate conclusions: 

1.there was some invisible garbage in the plugin file in W11 (copied
from W10). 

2.the positioning not working is not yet solved or explainable.

Maybe the problem isn't the switch from Windows 10 to 11, but rather
the plugin is not loaded on the other box?

Set Log-Level in the Pd window to "3 debug". You should see a message

Loading plugin: /home/roman/Pd/externals/mypdwindow-plugin.tcl

If this is not shown, then make sure that paths are configured
correctly in "Preferences" -> "Path".
