When you minimize it, it should be on taskbar. X programs in general use taskbar. But not all programs are from X. Use 'ps aux' and see how many programs you have in your system. It may not be a good idea to have them all on taskbar. But that's offtopic.

Strange. Graphical programs should always appear in the task bar. Did you change something?

Maybe you removed (or moved somewhere) the script that makes the taskbar? Look into taskbar options.

Try doing this: right click on your panel (in microsoft terms, the taskbar), point to add to panel, utility, and click window list. Does this work?
