I'm on Unity 3D, in a dual-monitor setup. I like to keep certain applications on fixed monitors / workspaces. However, it annoys me needing to move all those windows to the desired monitor / workspace every day. Is it possible to remember the monitor and workspace for specific windows in Unity 3D? I know KDE's kwin can do it...

You might be able to do it with the Compiz Config Settings Manager (CCSM): sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager Go to CCSM > Window Management > Place Windows – BullfrogBlues Dec 26 '12 at 11:46
