How To Start A Program Minimized


Is there a common CL option or switch to start a program minimized?

Specifically, I have a particular xterm that starts when X loads, and I'd like it to start 'minimized.'

Since it appears to me that, literally, everything is possible in Linux, I figure this must be possible, but I haven't come across any way to do this.

cheers,

There is no common command line argument to start a program minimized.

This is totally dependant on your window manager. Most wm's have the option to start programs minimized (iconized), full screen etc. Few, if any, programs will themselves have this option since it is redundant. Window management is the responsibility of the (surprise!) window manager.
