Note that the filename of the .desktop file is not the name you see in Dash. In Dash, you see the name as in the line, starting with Name=, inside the .desktop file (or a localized additional line).

comment Hardware or software?
Given the circumstances; a lot of "open" information/ possible causes, I am afraid it is quite impossible to find out from a distance.

comment How can I lock an application (and all its new windows) into a specific workspace?
@OHLÁLÁ I am afraid we do not have other options to distinguish different instances of one application than: - (part of) window name, - window size, - order of window creation. In short: window properties. Is there any identifying property in that?

@OHLÁLÁ their pid, their process name. All will be in one I am afraid. I am not that familiar with Matlab (Not much more than I know what it does),. I understand you want to run two (or more) instances of Matlab and pin their plot windows to a specific workspace? Not sure if it can be identified easily, but with a working situation, could you post somewhere the output of pstree? Also, do the output windows have a specific name? It would be an easy shot if that is the case :).

@OHLÁLÁ then they both will be locked to the workspace you set in the command. Since their WM_CLASS is identical, the second one will be moved to the one you set in the command.

@OHLÁLÁ as mentioned, I find the question very interesting and will keep working on it. What I have in mind is a file in which the user can set application and workspace -sets. If you run into possible bugs, please mention it!

I rewrote the script. It is pretty fresh and the test only runs for an hour now. Possibly we'll need to fix something still, but it works pretty well so far.

from command line: install xdotool (sudo apt-get install xdotool), run the command: xdotool getmouselocation. It outputs like: x:564 y:568 screen:0 window:81789111. Not sure if that is what you are looking for? Please leave a comment.

Hi OHLÁLÁ, please let me know if the script is useful to you. The processor usage could be reduced to practically none with some tweaks, the focus issue is solved. Will probably continue editing tomorrow.

Hi OHLÁLÁ, I actually got it working quite well, all additional windows of the application are instantly moved to the app's initial workspace, but.... indeed the current window on the current workspace loses focus nevertheless. Still figuring on a solution. Would you still try the solution?

Going well, but might be tomorrow before it is "answer-ready".

I will post later today, if not someone posts another brilliant solution in the meantime.

It should not, but if it does, I won't post it :)
