finding pixel position in imagemagick

i opened an image using GUI of imagemagick in ubuntu 16.04.3(64bit) .
Now I zoomed into the image .
I want to know the pixel position of my mouse .
Actually my aim is to manually locate pixel position of a particular chessboard square corner in image .
In paintbrush in windows , it is simply hovering the mouse over desired point and status bar shows the x,y coordinate.
How do I do this in imagemagick ?


PS:I will post imagemagick version as soon as I can.

I do not know if this will work on your system. One used to be able to do something like option click or command click and get the cursor location. But on my system if I select EDIT then CUT and move the cursor over the image, the X,Y location of the cursor shows. I am on a Mac using XQuartz. But the X11 that I used to have before Apple stopped using it, worked the older way.
