Define applications position at launch (lxde-openbox)

One way to deal with this issue is... of course the Non-Session-Manager. But then still, if you open a session, all those apps can explode in your face. To deal with this it is possible to define applications position when launching the application. Let app x start at workspace 4, maximized, for instance.
I've good experiences with LXDE-openbox. You can install it next to Gnome3 and choose in Gdm inlog menu in which environment you want to login to.

This are some examples from a ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml file

Code: Select all

 <applications>
 <application name="Non-Session-Manager">
<desktop>6</desktop>
<layer>normal</layer>
<decor>yes</decor>
<maximized>yes</maximized>
</application>

<application name="Non-Mixer">
<desktop>5</desktop>
<layer>normal</layer>
<decor>yes</decor>
<maximized>yes</maximized>
</application>

<application name="Non-Timeline">
<desktop>4</desktop>
<layer>normal</layer>
<decor>yes</decor>
<maximized>yes</maximized>
</application>

#non-sequencer
<application name="non">
<desktop>1</desktop>
<layer>normal</layer>
<decor>yes</decor>
<maximized>yes</maximized>
</application>

<application name="ZynAddSubFX 3.0.5">
<desktop>1</desktop>
<layer>normal</layer>
<decor>yes</decor>
<maximized>no</maximized>
</application>

<application name="Carla">
<desktop>3</desktop>
<layer>normal</layer>
<decor>yes</decor>
<maximized>yes</maximized>
</application>

<application name="patchage">
<desktop>2</desktop>
<layer>normal</layer>
<decor>yes</decor>
<maximized>yes</maximized>
</application>

  </applications>
