Hi -

I'm new to xfce (love it!) so am just getting familiar with different xfce resources and maybe somebody has already addressed this but with xfce4.4 I'm wondering if there's a way to 1) make something persistently sticky (from session to session) and 2) how to remove its name from the taskbar?

I know when I start a session I can RMB on taskbar to make it sticky but I have to do that every time I start a session; I also haven't found a way to stop it from appearing on taskbar to begin with.

This particular question is for a couple eterms running mtail and I see that by linking my script that starts them in ~/.config/autostart a *.desktop file gets created and I'm wondering if there's keywords I can add to this file to do the above two things?

Umm, no :oops: I was looking at his site and got the impression it had gnome/mc reqs I didn't want to install. Silly me, thanks.

RDEPEND=">=dev-libs/glib-2.9.1
        >=x11-libs/gtk+-2
        x11-libs/libwnck"
DEPEND="${RDEPEND}

No gnome required, only gtk/glib.
