To send apps to system tray


Hi
I want to know how I send applications like yahoo messenger to the system tray in Debian, or in other words, how to 'dock' them. Because, when I close yahoo!, it signs me out.
Some of the applications like aMSN do have this option pre-enabled in them, but I want to do the same thing to yahoo as well.

Thanks in advance.
Cheers
Aristarchus

What messagin application are u using, perhaps try GAIM and Kopete (GNOME and KDE based respectivly). They are both multi-type account messaging, and both support AIM. I know from experience that they sit in the sys tray automatically

Thanks, but gaim and kopete do not work

Thanks a lot for your reply,
but I have a serious problem here. I am behind a proxy, and the administrators have blocked port 119 and 5050 tunneling. So gaim does not work.
As far as kopete and kmerlin are concerned, despite giving them all the settings as needed (they use the net settings of KDE as specified in the control center right?), they simply DON'T sign me in. In fact, whenever I try to use kopete or kmerlin, my system simply hangs.
What do I do then?

hmm, I think that kopete uses settings from the control panel, dnt know about kmerlin, but surley in GAIM you can set up proxies. Also, if those ports are blocked, and that is what AIM uses, then none of the clients will work. Hope this helps
