I just upgraded to Redhat 7.1 and KDE 2.1.2, and the kstart program doesn't seem to work.
For instance, if I want to launch kmail on virtual desktop 4:
kstart --desktop 4 kmail
(I noticed that the syntax is a bit different than in previous versions. In KDE 1.x,
the above command would have been 'kstart kmail -desktop 4')
Anyway, issuing the above command starts kmail on desktop 1. I've tried many different
approaches, and I simply cannot get kmail to launch on desktops other than 1 without
first switching to the target desktop.
I also noticed that the --skiptaskbar flag doesn't seem to work.
Any suggestions for workarounds?
I could try forcing kmail to always launch on desktop 4 by modifying a .desktop file,
but that doesn't seem to work either.
