when i minimize the xterm window it disappears, instead of showing on the panel below

I was wondering whether any of u had ever encountered this problem. When i minimize any window , it simply disappears
instead of showing up on the panel at the bottom of the screen.
I am sure, there is some setting in the gnome panel which rectifies this , but i don't know what.

On the gnome panel, there should be a help button. If not type gnome-help-brower in a terminal window.There you will find the Gnome User's Guide

if you rightclick on the panel, there's a taskbar properties tab you can get to... unclick "show only iconified windows".
that should do it.

You might have already found the respnse elsewhere but...

Add to panel > Utilities > Window list.

You probably erased a separator like I did. It seems they get attached to the item they're next to on the panel.

I am having the same problem, but cannot find the place to change the "show iconified windows" setting. does anyone know the exact path to the location of the setting? I am using Red Hat 9, with the gnome desktop.

it is always better to keep panel open in your vnc session. All of your minimized session will visible there. execute gnome-panel to attach panel to vnc
