Hi Everyone,

Is it possible to have a program opened and not shown on the taskbar?

I have made a launcher Manna Menu and would like not to have it shown on the taskbar since it will be on the screen full time.

Thanks for any help

Cheers

Hi.

Here's only enough to wet your water pump, since I don't know how to do it in jwm... (shame on me) Smile

In icewm or lxp-icewm you'd insert the following line in your winoptions file :

Code:
XLoad.ignoreTaskBar: 1


(replacing "XLoad" with the proper program name)

BFN.

You can do it in JWM by the class nolist function- see here-

Keef, point well taken.

I found that gtkdialog usually needs both class and name-

Code:
--name=nolist --class=nolist


and in /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal
Code:

<Group>
<Name>nolist</Name>
<Class>nolist</Class>
<Option>nolist</Option>
</Group>


Cheers,
s

If your app uses Gtkdialog:
Code:
<window skip-taskbar-hint="true">

Greetings!

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for all of your help.

@SFR That did work for not showing on taskbar. But I end up using this pet from here http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=588570#588570 which allowed me to have it off and not have a window frame as well.

It seems that this works out the best for me

Cheers
