Thread: minimising windows

  1. #1

    minimising windows

    SuSE 9.2 Pro.
    When I click the dash to minimise the current window it appears to close the program down instead of putting an entry in the taskbar which means I have to restart the program again and i have lost all the work.
    How can I get it to minimise to the taskbar again.

    Any specific program, or all of them?
    You might find that you just don't have pager on the panel, so it doesn't show.
    Is it in alt-tab?
    whjat if you run 'ps x' in a terminal - does it show the program still running?

    All programs.
    I just minimised one program to the taskbar and ran the ps x command and it was listed, does this mean it is still running?.

    Yep, it's still running.
    You could try alt-tab to cycle through the apps, see if they are there.
    If that's the case, you probably want to add the window list applet back to the panel. I'm sure a kde user can tell you how to do that, Babbing?

    You could right click on the kicker and navagate as follows: add->Special Button-> Window list

    You will be given a button to click on that will allow you to pick from any application started in that KDE session.
