Thumbs up

From Chapter 7: The Slit, in the main Fluxbox documentation which can be found here:

Quote:
As an example, xmms ships with the wmxmms application. Simply run wmxmms &, and it will appear in the slit. As mentioned above, some applications (for example gkrellm) need the -w command line switch to appear in the Slit.
Happy Fluxing!

Nope, you misunderstood me...I don't want an ugly applet. I want just a small icon of the minimized xmms on the toolbar, not on the slit.

Exclamation

Hmm, okay.

This *should* do it, but I have never tried it. I found this page from googling around for a while and coming across the terms, 'apps file' and 'IconHidden'.

If that doesn't work, there are a few suggestions in this thread. Yes, I know the thread is on an Ubuntu forum, but the suggestions may still help.
