What software can give minimized application icons on the desktop for Openbox?


In window managers such as mwm and olwm, when a window is minimized, an icon is displayed on the desktop. Is there any small application that can provide this functionality with Openbox? I tried xfdesktop and found this works, but it interferes with Openbox's own menus has too many dependencies, so I'd rather find a smaller program.

I use Rox-Filer with fluxbox. Gives you desktop icons and minimized window icons on the desktop. There are packages available for many distros.

If you are using debian heres the link http://rox.sourceforge.net/desktop/Debian.html

For the smaller desktop environments, like LXDE or XFCE, usually the file-manager offers this functionality, so you may want to have a look at PCManFM or Thunar.
