I'm on Linux and have 8 virtual desktops and I often work on different projects on different desktops. If I run gedit from the command line gedit will start a new instance if there isn't already a running instance on the current virtual desktop.
I know I can do 'geany -i <file>' to open a new instance, but I was wondering if the behaviour of Gedit could be matched with Geany.
I'd also like this behaviour - I added a TODO item a while ago: o (per-workspace instances with socket support?)
I don't know whether this is doable for Geany, more research needed.
Geany does not know about virtual desktops. These are accessed with Gnome specific libraries and would increase the dependencies of Geany and would make it more complex to keep portable to all desktops and to Windows.
Maybe, but we're hopefully going to add some kind of X session support, so not sure this argument holds.
Welcome back Nick, good point, in that case I believe the functionality is in libwnck
