I am running Gnome Shell 3.2 on Ubuntu 11.10.

I generally launch application from Meta-key, followed by a few characters, followed by up-down arrows, followed by Enter. The applications launch in the same workspace.

Is there a keyboard shortcut so that I can open the application in a new workspace? If not by default, is there any way in which it can be done? (Alt-Enter or Shift-Enter, etc)

It doesn't seem possible, unless someone writes an extension for it.

According to the GnomeShell Cheat Sheet the closest you can get to this functionality is to launch the application, then use Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Up/Down to move it to another workspace.

    Sad. That would have been a useful keyboard shortcut. – deshmukh Nov 8 '11 at 3:29
