Hi, I have made a script (used for debugging a multi-user web portal) to run multiple instances of Firefox (each with its own profile). Is it possible to specify the workspace when starting a program from the terminal/script, so I am able to e.g. start the first 10 instances in workspace 1, the next 10 instances in workspace 2 etc.?

bash-script: for i in {1..40; do sleep 0.1; firefox -p $i -new-instance "" & done

Kind regards, Morten

Hmm, don't know why my question appeared in two separate threads. This has already been answered, see "start-program-in-specific-workspace-using-terminalbash-script". (not enough karma to post direct link)
