Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am having a problem with devilspie. It works good with basic applications like game and terminal windows but when it comes to web browsers it only half works. When just using application name and geometry for positioning it will work as expected, however, when I try to filter multiple web browsers with the window_name attribute, devilspie fails. What I mean by filtering in this case is; positioning the unique web pages on different monitors using the title of each web page as the filter for placement. It will work but only after the browsers have launched and I restart the devilspie daemon.
After much frustration I have concluded, unless someone here has a resolution, that the only way to make it happen would be with a work around script. I imagine that a background script may be able to monitor certain processes and detect when a web browser has opened, determines and matches the page that has been opened and then launch devilspie.
I am not savvy with scripting and I would appreciate any suggestions that would help with my problem.
