Controlling what appears in the taskbar


I'm running KDE 3.2.1 on Suse 9.1

Does anyone know how to prevent programs from putting a tab on the KDE taskbar? I want the program to start and run normally, but I just don't want anything in the task bar indicating that it's running. Specifically, I'm doing this for torsmo, and I didn't find anywhere in the documentation about how to do this. Thanks for any help

You can just delete the task bar from the panel and then no programs will show up there. That's what I do.

I want to be able to do this selectively with certain programs. Most programs I still want to show up in the taskbar.

I figured out how to solve my problem. Turns out there is an option under Configure Desktop that allows you to draw stuff directly to the desktop. And then I turned off the Draw Window option for torsmo, so no window popped up in my taskbar.

pibby, maybe this link will help you, if you're running KDE 3.3

Actually, I'm running Fluxbox, so unfortunately that solution won't work for me. Glad it worked out for you though! Back to searching
