    I don't know if anyone of you experienced this (I haven't read the whole post) but I was having a problem with undecorate: I was trying to get a transparent terminal on my desktop, and wanted it on the right side of the screen, for most automatic icons created by ubuntu lay on the left side. I placed my rules and stuff but, no matter how I changed geometry, or the profile, I always got it on the left side of the screen.

    Now, I found out what happens: the UNDECORATE action should be placed BEFORE the GEOMETRY action. This is because undecorate will place the window at top-left, and THEN you will move it with geometry. Hope this help somebody!

    For anyone that has an idea of what I should do:
    I boot with:
    VBoxManage startvm xp
    so Then When it loads, it loads in the first window, Is this how I can load VirtualBox in the second window?:


    ?xml version="1.0"?>
    <!DOCTYPE devilspie SYSTEM "devilspie.dtd">
          <matcher name="DevilsPieMatcherWindowName">
            <property name="application_name" value="VBox Manager startvm xp"/>
          <action name="DevilsPieActionSetWorkspace">
            <property name="workspace_index" value="2"/>
    That should just change were It opens the application right? its a specific boot. But i dont know if I put it under application_name
    So when I login, I have under sessions startup:
    VBox Manager startvm xp
    So when it starts up it should just boot it in the second workspace.

    were do I save the .devilspie.xml flie? and is it ".devilspie.xml" or "devilspie.xml"
