The applications empathy and steam should start on different workspaces / viewports.

In the tool ccsm there is the configuration option

Window Management > Place Windows > Fixed Window Placement > Windows with fixed viewport

Here I added configuration settings for pidgin, skype, empathy and steam. However the settings for steam and empathy do not work. They always open on the current workspace / viewport.

How can I fix this?

  • It's possible that they have a different title, run xwininfo in terminal, click on the Steam window and check the output

  • What was printed in the terminal when you did that?

  • xwininfo For Steam it might be the problem that first the login window opens and after it closes the real steam window is opened. I clicked on the real steam window here.

  • So what'd it say? Try specifying the exe path ( if possible) in ccsm instead. I'll try later with my steam
