right click on the top of the gkrellm window and choose configuration. click the properties tab in the General category. there's a box Do not include on a taskbar. check that and hit the ok button.

if you plan on having gkrellm open when you login, thankfully you don't really have to do anything (for kde anyway). just create a shellscript in your ~/.kde/Autostart folder. or if you're using gnome, write the script and add it to your gnome autostart programs list. it's a 3 line script:

Code:
#!/bin/bash

file=./out.txt
ps -eal | grep "gkrellm" > "$file"
read line < "$file"
rm -f "$file"

i=0
for col in `echo $line`
do
	if [ "$i" -eq 3 ]
	then
		kill -9 "$col"
	fi
	i=$(($i+1))
done

exit 0
that kills all the gkrellm process that wasn't closed when you logged out of kde. but kde remembers you had the gkrellm process running when you last logged out and starts up a new gkrellm process.

edit: changed the script to my old script since using the killall "gkrellm" command and the gkrellm command yielded inconsistent behavior.
