'Send to tray' app for KDE 3.2?
Is there a tool /application which can minimize other windows (no not Ms ;-) to the tray (next to the clock) because I really hate it if some background programms like seti or wget waste my taskbar...

IceWM can do that... but you probably want something that works with KDE.
BTW, there is a command-line switch in wget that makes it run in the background.

yes, i somehow prefer KDE... (it is the only installed :-/)

hmm but the hint with the background option is good.

Thank you!

(I used not to put wget in Background (with strg-z, bg), because then it somehow gets slower (87K->~6K) perhaps because of less priority , but this doesn't happen with this method. thank you

Is there a possibility to put it in foreground again?

Not sure if there's an easier way, but I would just kill it and resume it by running wget again (another switch is needed for resume).
