KDE - Pager


Hi,

This has always botherred me in KDE! The desktop pager just doesnt make sense, there's nothing virtual about it! Take Gnome for example, if you open Xchat on "workspace 1", then click "workspace 2", you wont see Xchat in your taskbar. That's how it should be! All KDE's desktop pager does is make sure that the application's windows is minimised. Is there no way KDE can behave like Gnome in this way? Else I just find it really useless to have a desktop pager that doesn't meet it's need.

M.

There is an option in control center for the panel not to display taskbar entries from all workspaces.
