Thread: Showing an application on some desktops - is it possible?

  1. #1

    Default Showing an application on some desktops - is it possible?

    I know I can open a window and choose a desktop to show it on. I can also choose to show an application on all desktops. Is it possible, perhaps with a plug-in, to show an application on selected desktops?

    Due to the nature of my work I have a few windows that I would really like to show up on 2 desktops out of my 8. This really is just a convenience (definitely not a necessity) but a very nice one if if there is a way.

    System: openSUSE 13.2 with KDE4.

    Thanks,
    Reg

    You can. But you need to create activities and bind the activities to desktops.

    I was afraid this question would come up . I've done this on KDE4, but don't remember exactly how I did this. People in forums.kde.org should be able to tell you. Problem for me is that I don't have any KDE4 running anymore ( all Leap and TW ).
