I'm not sure if it's a KDE only command, but "kstart" can at least get 
the apps onto different desktops. It also has some other flags that do 
other things...

In it's simplest form... This will start qjackctl on desktop 2...
kstart --desktop 2 qjackctl

Here's an example of how it will start qjackctl on desk 2, jump to 
desktop 2 (no matter what desktop you are currently on) and (not) have 
an entry in the task bar...

kstart --desktop 2 --activate --skiptaskbar qjackctl

see "kstart --help" for more info
