[solved] kde only show windows from current desktop in taskbar

Particularly for Mandriva 2007.1, I can't find a way in the GUI to disable showing all the windows in the taskbar. You can disable it using your text editor in the file ~/.kde/share/config/ktaskbarrc (change the value of ShowAllWindows to false).

ShowAllWindows=false. under [General] If there is no [General] then simply make one line with that first.

Or right click the task bar, select "Configure Panel", click "Taskbar" and unselect "Show windows from all desktops". One of the first things I do after an install.
