Auostart in specific Workspace?

Post by KirstyTT » Wed Sep 11, 2019 10:39 am

Hi all,

I use workspaces and like Nemo to start in workspace #3 every time I boot.

Can I do?

How to do this?

Thank you.

Install wmctrl and try bash -c "sleep 3;wmctrl -s2 && nemo& wmctrl -s0;exit $?" as a new startup application command.

Nemo should start in workspace #3 and switch back to workspace #1

Thank you, all most. I set as start-up command with 10 second delay and it open in ws3 but stays there, but OK. Thanks save me many clicks now.
