Hey buddy, so will this only work in KDE or will it work in Gnome as well? I never use Gnome, and seldomly use KDE, but just for reference, I would like to know.

And btw, thanks for the awesome tip. I haven't given it a try yet, but I would guess that a command like that wouldn't be very system specific (maybe version specific, but not system)

Cool

well seeing as ksystraycmd is part of kde, the chance of it working on gnome is somewhat millions to one...

i still kinda resent the "all members" bit... maybe it should have read "all members who still want to pretend they are using windows"

he he he

Just because KDE is a memory hog; xine can't play anything; and repeated posts aren't worth your effort, doesn't mean they all suck. It just means that some people:
1. Don't know anything else exists;
2. Can't figure out that command line works better;
3. Can't see the search button located in the upper right hand corner of the screen, or think that their idea is new.

No actually I think a lot of people use KDE because it's easier than learning something else, and it works very well. Not because they are stuck in winbloze mentality, or because they are in la la land believing they are still using winbloze. KDE is built to enable ease of use, but still give the stability of using Linux. It's definitely 50x better than winbloze default GUI (oh wait, there is no other option).

The reason I asked about other Desktop Environments is because alot of other KDE things will work in Gnome and vice versa so I was wondering if this was also one. But this would probably be tied to kicker, so you could probably use it, but you'd need kicker running as well. No?

Cool

Another kde trick is kstart, do "kstart --help" for the options.
I use it for gkrellm with "kstart --skippager --skiptaskbar --alldesktops gkrellm"

PS: KDE can't be all bad if Linus uses it

Well like acid said, it's probably only going to work in KDE, or only when using kicker. So unless you are running kicker in flux, it probably won't do anything for you.

Cool

i really don't see where this probably thing comes from... ksystraycmd is part of KDE, so if you're not running KDE . it. will. not. work.
