Minimized Apps Dsappear?


Ok, don't laugh.

I'm running RH9. When I have an app open like a browser, and I use the minimize button (Windows will minimize the program to the taskbar) , but RH9 puts it in a black hole, somewhere???

Why is not in one of the panels to restore? How do I get it back?

Thanks.

Really, stop laughing!

Tom

is it in one of the other desktops or something? Make sure the process is still running after you minimize it as well.

I have set up the desktop switcher with four panels, but when I minimize an app, it flies down toward the system tray (right bottom). It doesn't stay in the desktop switcher panel.

How do tell if a process is running in RH9 Linux?

I know about "top" and "ps" for monitoring proccesses. It would help to use a console to start up the app if you aren't already.

I found out what I was doing wrong. I was using the desktop switcher in place of the window list utility. Now it's acting the way I expect.

It sometimes helps to what your doing...

Off-topic, but:

Did you find the spell-checker yet? SMSish, particularly
when white-spaces and punctuation are omitted, is gross.


Cheers,
