Howto launch KDE "Konsole" in separate workspaces in 11.04? (Ubuntu)


I just upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 and having trouble exec'ing the Konsole terminal utility in more than one workspace. Anybody on this forum know which button to mouse-click to do this easily?

thanks in advance

ALT+TAB with the mouse cursor (or "pointing device") on the Konsole icon? No. But ALT+TAB anywhere else and a rectangle of stuff opens in mid-screen, but disappears when I reach for the mouse. --I only have one hand--.

But, a work-around may be to (1) select an empty workspace, (2) click on that Ubuntu icon and then (3) select "More Apps", then (4) chose "Installed" [and probably "see N more results"] and scroll down to "Konsole" and (5) click *that* icon. It looks like if you want more than one Konsole per Workspace, you just goto "(2)".

This newest version of Ubuntu is hard to get this set up. Do you know if there is a way of setting everything so that when I reboot, my apps are where they were? You or anybody else reading this?

thanks!

dear kline,
sorry I do not know.
did you know that Shft + CTR + N creates another terminal when you hit it being already in a terminal?
I do not use the mouse so much, I prefer the keyboard.
Sorry for not being of any help

About "CTRL+SHIFT+N"

Works. I like to keep my fingers-on-keyboard. I'll ask in another post about howto keep the configurations the safe between reboots.

Every bit helps!
