Check the set_workspace box and set the workspace to 3. Click the maximize_horizontally check box. Click Save. Click Stop then Start on the gDevilspie main window for good measure.

( if ( begin ( is ( window_class ) "File Manager" ) ( is ( application_name ) "File Manager" ) ) ( begin ( set_workspace 3 ) ( maximize_horizontally ) ( println "match" ) ) )
Using the example above you can configure gDevilspie to set your applications to run many different ways.
