    [SOLVED] How to open a window/application directly in a desktop? kde vs gnome


    Hi all,
    This is my 1st post, hope you can help me:
    In kde I can configure windows to "force" them always open in a specific desktop. I set firefox to open in desktop 1, openoffice in desktop 2, amsn in 3 and konsole in desktop 4.
    How can I do the same in Gnome?

    I'm using gnome 2.30 on Fedora 13.

    thanks all!!

    Thumbs up up and running!!

    OK I found it in ubuntuforums.org under 'How to make specific applications open on corresponding workspaces?'
    Look for post #4 by Jim Danner , thank you man!!!!

    (I'm not allowed to post url yet...sorry)

    TIP maybe you will need to test everyone with class/name/title to see wichone works ( like I did :P )
    and don't forget to enable 'Regex Matching' (took me a lot of time realize that..........)


    Good luck!!!
