Suppress startup notification in Gnome?


While a program loads, Gnome does two things to inform the user of the startup event:

1. It displays a busy cursor when the mouse is in the panel,
2. and it also displays a "Starting $ProgramName" button in the window list applet.

I presume that is behavior is caused by the startup notification[1] events fired by the program. How do I stop this behavior with specific programs or BASH scripts that? Note that I found information describing how to do the opposite, force startup notification for a program [2]. That doesn't help, tho. How do I suppress startup notification in Gnome?

I'm new to Linux (user since Nov. 31, 2003), but I learn quickly.

Lightbulb Figured it out

Nevermind, I figured it out. Basically, I just looked for the *.desktop file that represented the link on the gnome panel. I then edited the file in a text editor (I choose gedit), adding the line:
Code:
StartupNotify=false
Make sure there isn't a line stating:
Code:
StartupNotify=true
Hope that helps someone else! (From one newbie to another.)
