View Full Version : [ubuntu_mate] Workspace contents at startup -- Ubuntu 15.04 Mate

May 20th, 2015, 11:20 AM
I like to run with at least six workspaces, with each one running a different mix. Three with Chrome, and the rest with programmes such as Gimp, Fotoxx, Bluefish, and Libre. Pluma, Monitor, Yakuake (don't like Tilda) on all workspaces.

But I have to set them all up anew at every reboot.

Is there a way to make Mate start up with the same stuff in each workspace every time?

Are there config files somewhere that can be edited to control this kind of thing?

[Ubuntu 15.04 Mate running on AMD64.]

No takers?

What you're looking for is a way to have Mate remember the sessions between reboots, as it would when it resumes from being suspended. XFCE has that option, as well as KDE. I haven't seen it on Mate, but it might be out there. You might ask the Ubuntu Mate folks (https://ubuntu-mate.org/community/).

If you are asking can you open an application and it will always be on desktop number 2, 3, or 4, there is a way. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lubuntu/Windows
See the sub-paragraph "How do I assign a certain program to open to a desktop #2"
