how to startup a program in a certain desktop


I have Suse 9.0 installed and have an application that starts up automatically in Desktop 1, when I log into KDE.

I have a link in the following directory


I would like this program to actually start automatically but go directly to Desktop 4.

Is this possible or not ?

"I would like this program to actually start automatically but go directly to Desktop 4. "

Try this:
Click on the small triangle at the top left corner of the screen. Click on To Desktop. Click on 4.
Go to desktop 4 and click on Store Window Settings.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
