DIY: I'm hanging two sets of rolling curtains
from IKEA today in my apartment. Each one will be hanging from the ceiling of a window niche, which is drywall.

I have not had the best of luck hanging curtains from drywall in the past. The anchor points always seem to loosen up over time, so I thought I'd see if I could get some good advice and do it right this time.
Here are a few pictures I took of the window and hardware:

with measuring tape, Curtain Hanger
where I need to anchor it, Fasteners / Anchors
that I have at my disposal.
Tape measure is in centimeters.
Will it be a problem to mount the anchors so close to a corner? What sort of fastener should I use? Also, my apartment is in Europe, in case specific construction methods here have any bearing on the answers to my questions.
