Minimize to system tray "only"

Hi there,

I was wonderring if there is any application out there that will allow you to force any application to minimize to system tray. I am using KDE in Slackware 10.1 and it doesn't help at all to enable the system tray icon in gaim, or set the X-Chat appelet to show in system tray when it is still showing in the taskbar that I'm trying to unclutter I want GAIM, X-Chat & XQF to minimize to System Tray ONLY, not the taskbar also...

In windows there are several apps you can get that will allow you to control where something minimizes to, and alot of the programs like mIRC, All-Seeing-Eye or any IM allow you to select "minimize to system tray" and "blink system tray icon" when there's any activity (incoming messages.

Anyway, I've googled all over the place and can't find a thing, any suggestions?

Minimize to System Tray solved!

You just tell it to skip taskbar on windows-specific settings after you enable sys tray icon Now this only works on applications like gaim that have a "close to sys tray" option... I still need to find a way to do it to all windows. e.g. with x-chat - I have it display in sys tray, but I can't minimize it... it still unclutters my taskbar though so I will do it this way for now.
