Hey, i was wondering if it is possible to allocate amsn chat windows to a specific desktop. So far example, if someone messages me it will automatically be thrown onto desktop 3


Thanks for any help.

Since you obviously understood his question was it really necessary to be a message board snob to the guy. Not everyone on these boards was born with a silver reply button in their mouth like you were your Postliness.

It would be easier to know your WM, however yes it is possible depending on your windowmanager it requires a different set of actions.

If you are using KDE it is possible. by right clicking on the window decoration and clicking send to desktop (number) in the context list.

For gnome there is a similar function but im less familiar with it off the top of my head.

Thanks for the replies.

acid_kewpie, im sorry but sometimes a thought escapes ones mind and doesn't notice a mistake he's done... the only way for me to really rememeber if someone (like you did) reminded me that different WM use different methods.

chaosbunny, thanks for the reply, but my question was specifically more towards making it all automatic, so if someone sends me a message, it will be thrown onto desktop x without me having to manually move it (all new windows are thrown onto whatever virtual desktop currently on)


Anyways, I use KDE, and i just figured out how to manage it with some tinkering and playing around.

For anyone else who is interested in achieving this, follow these steps:

-right click on the titlebar of amsn and select "Configure Windows Behavior"
-then under Windows Specific settings, create a new setting
-Under the 'Window' tab, click Detect settings and click anywhere on the amsn window(it must be visable on the desktop)
-Under the same tab, choose 'Exact match' Under Windows class
-Finally under the 'Geometry' tab, check the Desktop button, then select Force, Then choose the desktop you want all the messaged and popups to go under and then click Ok and apply the changes



If anyone needs more help in this, just ask and i will be welcomed to help out.

btw, I only know this to work under KDE, i have not tried Gnome yet.


Enjoy!




Wow, i just noticed that my answer was answered earlier this morning, but i missed it

Anyone who's interested
