How to open apps on several workspaces on startup

Post by timidos » Mon Aug 19, 2019 3:04 am

Good day.
I want to open some apps on other workspaces. Is it possible to config it at "Startup applications" or other Mint app?

First things first... Can you tell us your Mint version and desktop environment? It's pretty much impossible to answer this question (and many others) without that very minimal information.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

Please post an inxi -Fxz report. This will give us a concise overview of your hardware and on how Mint sees it.

Here is how to generate the report and post it:

Open a terminal window. Make it fullscreen to avoid unneeded linebreaks or chopped lines. Execute the command

Code: Select all

 inxi -Fxzd 
exactly as it has been typed here.

Mark the complete text output which the command will display with your mouse.
Press the keyboard shortcut <Shift><Ctrl>C to copy the marked text into the clipboard.
Enclose the results between the code markers by selecting </> from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply then paste <Ctrl>V them in your reply between the code markers.

The results will help us to help you.
