Default starting programs in linux in different workspaces

I know how to set linux up to automatically load programs. What I would like to do is set the program to start in workspace 4 instead of workspace 1. Is there a way to do this and still have linux show workspace 1 when booted?

Hi,

I am guessing that you are using Compiz. I am not aware of a way to do that. I can do a little looking but I think that you are going to have to move the programs to the desktop that you want once they are started.

Cheers!

I could be wrong but I don't think that there is a way to set the init.d status to start the program on a different desktop as Compiz is a program itself.

Cheers!
