I'm running 11.10.
Is there a way of setting certain applications to always open on a specified workspace? I have noticed that most people suggest using CompizConfig Settings Manager, but this can cause disastrous problems with Unity.
I found this identical question, but the only answer there was CCSM: Is it possible to pin certain apps to a workspace in Unity?
Is there any way to do this without CCSM? I have been searching for ages, but can't find an alternative.
Devilspie partially works, but appears to have some limitations. I have a 2x2 workspace grid and can successfully get applications to start in workspace 1 or two, but trying 3 or 4 fails and the application loads in workspace 1. This seems to be an issue with them being on a second row. I have found many others with the same issue, such as here:
Where the suggested answer was to use CCSM!
