Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Just like Eugenia yesterday, I also upgraded my laptop's Ubuntu Feisty installation to Gutsy a few days ago. The upgrade process went completely awry, though, so I was forced to do a fresh install. Not a bad thing, as it gave me the opportunity to take a look at Ubuntu's soon-to-be-released Gutsy Gibbon with GNOME 2.20

Thom, you are using compiz-fusion. Why use devilspie when the "place" plugin exists? Under ccsm it is "Place Windows". It supports having some applications always on the same viewport or location.


I'm not using Devil's Pie. I was just looking for a way to do what I described I wanted to do. Didn't know the place plugin took care of these matters. Thanks.

There are so many plugins, it's sometimes hard to see the trees through the forest.

Update: Damn, that place plugin is impossible to use. What a mess to configure.

What I want is this: right click application entry in the menu or in the taskbar, and just select: confine to workspace x. That's it.
