As you may know kde-4 had a very useful feature, you could minimize to tray almost any application. Xvideos
It’s useful for example for: Xnxx
- mailing clients (thunderbird, which doesn’t have any extension for it now)
- notes applications (treeline for example, I think no one uses it here, ha-ha)
- any other types of application which you want to keep open permanently (spotify?)
But kde-5 removes this option, there was a checkbox in some early versions, but it didn’t work cause ksystraycmd was removed from the bundle.
But today I found, ksystraycmd still works!
You just need to extract this single file from “kde-workspace-bin” package from kde-4.
So to run any application in “tray mode” you need just to modify shortcut, for example:
/path/to/ksystraycmd --hidden /usr/bin/thunderbird %u(for thunderbird).
/path/to/ksystraycmd --hidden --window TreeLine treeline(–window is for regexp which window should be used, treeline asks for password in a separated window)
