How can you run the application in a specific workspace using terminal

1. The task will connect to several terminal servers in kiosk mode.
2. A small application created using qt5 is responsible for connections and identification.
3. I learned how to manage workplaces from the console: xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/workspace_count -s 1
4. How can I start an xfeerdp application in a specific workspace?

Hello and welcome.

This command sets the number of active workspaces. In this case, to only 1.

You can use wmctrl to move an application to another workspace. Something like:

mousepad & sleep .5 && wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -t 1

...adjust the sleep value and workspace number to suit, Workspace numbers in wmctrl start with 0.

Thanks. I also found the "xdotool" utility. I am trying to solve my problem.
