blacklist for xfce-panel

i was wondering if there is some way to "blacklist" applications to dont appear on my panel

example:
i want a gnome-terminal instance, but i want it to appear invisible on the panel

sorry if this was posted before , i found nothing about it

Re: blacklist for xfce-panel

You could do this via wmctrl using a command like:

wmctrl -r :SELECT: -b toggle,skip_taskbar

...and then clicking on the terminal window.

Or bind:

wmctrl -r :ACTIVE: -b toggle,skip_taskbar

...to a keyboard shortcut and press this shortcut to affect the active window (note, since its a toggle, you can press the shortcut again to bring it back up on the panel).

To automate this you could use devilspie or devilspie2.

Re: blacklist for xfce-panel

Had the same issue with my Anyconnect client.  It would appear in the notification panel AND my taskbar.  Never even occured to me to look in wmctrl.  Thanks ToZ!
