What mechanism would I use to insert an application, such as gnome-terminal or firefox and have it stuck to the wall upon creation? My goal is to build a room in blender or 3DS and lock in the angles for best view for all the applications I intend to open. Thanks!

This functionality does not currently exist, but it makes sense to me to submit it as a feature request. A mechanism to automatically "snap" objects to the geometry in the world would be quite useful.

Currently, the only way to do this is to import your model, position it, and then select "edit > insert > object". If you have shared applications correctly configured server-side, you should be able to insert a FireFox or Xterm instance into your world. Then use the positioning affordances to place the object.
