Moving firefox to different desktop using CLI


I'm aking a script to startup Firefox when kde starts, but only if certain conditions are met.. but I'd like to be able to start it up and move it to a different desktop using a script

Any ideas on how to do this?

dcop doesn't seem to register firefox.

thanks in advance

RE: Moving firefox to different desktop using CLI

The date on your message is months ago...I hope you were able to solve your problem. I am currently trying to get any app to start on a specified virtual desktop. Sounds like maybe you were able to do this, just Firefox was giving you trouble. Any pointers you might be able to share with respect to referencing different screens (4 headed workstation) and their respective virtual desktops within a start script would be greatly appreciated.

I'm still very new in the KDE customization, but your response will at least get me started looking in the right direction.
