Is there a command-line way of asking for
an application, eg ssh, to open in a specified desktop?
wmctrl -r <WIN> -t <DESK> Move the window to the specified desktop.
note: you should check the number of desktops before using: wmctrl -d
if it just one then you can add by using: wmctrl -n 2 (or more)
to switch to another desktop use: wmctrl -s 1 (or another)
for more info see: man wmctrl
hope that helped,
