launch app to specific desktop of "workspace switcher"
Is there any way to comfigure a desktop launcher (gnome and KDE) that will cause windows to open on a specific desktop?
If there is some command that lets me (1) ask which desktop is current, and (2) direct which desktop to target, I can use a launcher wrapping script. I'm hoping that there is something like the --display option for X11 applications.
If I select a launcher, use ALT+F2, or background a gui-app from a shell, it will open on the current desktop. If it takes long enough to start, I can switch to another desktop and the window will open there.
I'd like to know a generic way that says, "open this window and connect it to desktop N"
I rely on workspace switcher to separate things that I'm doing. Desktop #1 for email and Skype and IM ... communications.
Desktop #2 for everything web browser and downloads.
Desktop #3 is file managers, open IDE's and GUI aspects of work-in-progress.
Desktop #4 for everything shell or [c|k]onsole.
