Hello, hope somebody can help me out with this. I think that it's probably pretty easy stuff for somebody who's pretty knowledgeable in Linux.
Anyway, I want to run a program called xlassie. It will dock itself in KDE, check my imap email account and notify me when I get new emails. My problem is that it is run from the terminal, and I don't want to keep an open terminal window sitting on my desktop (I know I'll mistakenly close it).
I've seen the "Special Window Settings" by clicking advanced in the upperleft of any of the windows. I tried this on my konsole, and actually managed to have the konsole window "disappear" (just not to display itself on the taskbar), but it was applied universally, and each new konsole would run but not be shown on the taskbar. Close but no cigar.
There are a bunch of check boxes there, but I don't know what they do - I'm afraid to play around with this stuff, since I already had my konsole disappear (I managed to get it back somehow!).
I've made a link to the xlassie application, added all of the switches I need to get the program running, and it works perfectly - except for the konsole sitting open while the program runs. There is a spot there for Advanced Options -> Terminal Options. Maybe there's a switch I can stick in there to make the konsole open up but not display itself on the taskbar?
I've read the mans and help, but haven't seen this come up. As far as I know, I'm the first person to ask about it on this board. Google didn't help me, since my search terms are too vague to get anything appropriate.
Any ideas? Thanks a bunch,
