    Default Workspaces/Virtual Desktop Reset after Logout


    Everytime I log-in, my applications from my previous session always open
    in the first workspace. Is there a way for them to stay in the same
    desktop that they were in when they closed. Or, alternatively, is there
    a way to make certain applications open in a specific desktop (such as
    making thunderbird ALWAYS open in desktop 4)

    I'm using OpenSUSE 11 and KDE4.1

    No one has responded. Was this a stupid question? Should I be posting it
    somewhere else?

    Hi,

    I don't use KDE, but I suspect that getting KDE to remember where
    programs should be started is not possible. I think that you other
    question about how to start them in specific windows is the way to go.

    There is a app called "devilspie" which I'm about to look at, it allows
    you to start programs in specific Workspaces. Install it and have a
    look at /usr/share/doc/devilspie/examples/sample-config.xml, this might
    be the way forward.

    Cheers
