Hi folks;
I have two programs set up to run at startup (Configure Desktop>  Startup&

both come up in the last active session virtual desktop (I'm using 6).

Is there a way to specify which virtual desktop they start in?  Haven't found
any documentation about that.

Yes, if you only want to control which desktop the app opens on at start up, use the (poorly named) "kstart" program.

For example:

kstart --desktop 7 --window "Mozilla Firefox" firefox
