Fluxbox and taskbar


Hi all!!!

I'm using Fluxbox 0.9.9 and i'm wondering if there's any option to make an app to not appear on the taskbar (such as torsmon - monitoring system).
The program itself does not have this option, and i don't see any on fluxbox to do that.

Any help appretiated

i just wanted to bump this thread and ask again if there's anyway of making a specific program to operate without it being in the taskbar?

I haven't seen this feature either.
An option is to send it to another workspace...this isn't a good solution, perhaps, but it does keep it off your current taskbar.

Yes, but as far as I know, only with Fluxbox 0.9.9 development version (that's the current devel version) which also supports transparency and pixmapped title bars. If you get that version there's a file called ~/.fluxbox/apps which allows you to set properties such as no window decorations, remember sticky status and no program icon (what you want) for different programs.

Oh, just noticed that you are using that version. I think the application name for the apps file is the same as the WM_NAME or WM_Class name (or something like that) which you can find using xprop. Just type xprop in a console window then click the app you don't want to appear on the taskbar. Have a look for what could be its name and then in the ~/.fluxbox/apps file add:
Code:
[app] (ROX-Filer)
  [IconHidden]  {yes}
[end]
replacing ROX-Filer with the name of your application.

The current devel version is 0.9.10, but it's very unestable (at least for me). The new devel version includes icons on menu, background selection (you put all wallpapers in a directory and you can select them in the menu) and a menu generator.

I've been trying the version, but it crashes randomly. I guess icon support is still at a very initial development.
