I'm using KDE5 Plasma with the icons-only task manager on my task bar.
I've dragged a few .desktop files onto the task manager and they launch their applications just fine, but when they do, a second icon appears for that application. This happens with Conky, Unity3D and Steam, for example.
I do have the StartupWMClass parameter set by looking it up via xprop:
WM_LOCALE_NAME(STRING) = "en_US.utf8"
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "Conky", "Conky"
And adding it to my desktop file:
However, it still creates the second icon.
Could there be something I've forgotten?
