Hi All

I just installed Vector today and I'm impressed. I've not had any major problems getting things running but I must admit I'm puzzled as to how to automatically move an application to a specific desktop. For example I want to move Thunderbird to Desktop 4, Exaile to Desktop 3 etc. when they start up. I assume this is possible with XFCE, and I know how to do it in OpenBox on Arch.

Any help is much appreciated.

I'm not sure if XFCE has that capability or not. Could it possibly be something added to .Xdefaults? I see several WM-oriented application configuration parameters in there. We do have Openbox in VL7 and even have LXDE. There's also Fluxbox which is installed as part of the default installation.
