How can I set a launcher to start an application in a specific desktop

I want to keep Pidgin, Skype, and a few other applications on a certain virtual desktop. How can I go about doing this, so that when I open these applications from my "primary" virtual desktop, the windows will appear in the other virtual desktop?

Here is how I do it in 11.04. I hope it would be same for you.

Go to compiz settings manager-> Window managment -> Place Windows -> Fixed Windows placements. In the section of "Windows with fixed viewport" click New. Click on "+". Click on Grab and then click the window you want to be placed on specific descktop. Click "Add". Set the value of "X Viewport Positions" to the desired desktop number. That's all.
