Question Help on How to Launch Multiple Applications on Different Desktops Via a Script


Hello,

I am new to Linux (I get to learn it for work ) I was wondering how to launch multiple applications on different work spaces via a script. I have researched it and come up with most people using "Devil's Pie" I don't have this as an option. (work reasons) I was wondering what commands I could use in the script file to launch an app. on Said monitor on Said workstation. Thanks for the help. Any help is appreciated (ps: I am using CentOS using RedHat)

If you are using gnome, then you are out of luck (apart from devilspie)
If you are using KDE, then you can use

kstart --desktop 3 program-name

to launch a program on desktop 3.
