Ubuntu – Initialize start-up applications in certain workspaces


Is it possible to set start-up applications to initialize in certain workspaces? I'd like to not have to manually distribute my start-up applications across my numerous workspaces every time I boot up my machine. I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 .

Any Help ?
