How to open a program on a particular desktop.

Postby Astrodan on Fri Jul 13, 2012 10:18 am

Hello,

I would like to know how to open an application on a specific desktop from the command line. What I am trying to do is write a script which would automatically open program A on say, the first desktop, then open program B on the second desktop, and so forth.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Which desktop environment are you using? On GNOME 2, and possibly MATE, there are various tools to do this. On GNOME 3 and probably Cinnamon, I'm not sure. KDE, like anything else you can think of to want to configure of course has this built in :)
