Hi!

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:

Code:
> xprop
...
WM_LOCALE_NAME(STRING) = "en_US.utf8"
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "Conky", "Conky"
WM_HINTS(WM_HINTS):
...


And adding it to my desktop file:

Code:
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Conky
Comment=System monitoring
...
Exec=/usr/bin/conky
StartupWMClass=Conky


However, it still creates the second icon.

Could there be something I've forgotten?
