A Terminal or browser will change between workspaces without any prompting from me and it is annoying. I am using Gnome on Fedora Core 5. If I have a browser, mail client and an xterm in workspace 4 then I Minimize the xterm then switch workspaces then click on the xterm icon to open it again it will open it in the current workspace rather than the origional workspace 4. Is there a way to tell a terminal to stay stuck on a workspace?

There is a setting for the panel that says "show on all desktops". That means that anything open on any desktop will show on the panel. I think you need to turn that off.

Then, you can set the particular window to "show on all desktops", and that will set it for that particular window. Now, if you set it on a window that is open, it will only last while that window is open, so you need to go into the custom window settings on your window manager to make it permanent.
