hiding apps from panel/window buttons

I'd like to hide my Cisco Anyconnect client once i've made a connection....is there a way to have the panel (i think the window buttons area) to ignore and not display certain apps from showing up?

thanks

Re: hiding apps from panel/window buttons

Manually, you can use wmctrl:

wmctrl -r :SELECT: -b add,skip_taskbar

...and when prompted with the cross cursor select the window that you want hidden from taskbar.

To automate it, you could use a tool like devilspie and a .ds file like:

(if (is (application_name) "APPNAME")
        (begin
                (skip_tasklist)
        )
)

...where APPNAME is the name of the app (which you can get from running devilspie in debug mode: "devilspie -d").
