[SOLVED] Linux, Xfce 4.18.1 on Debian 12

Hi together,

I have an app, SWISSWATCH, started during the boot. SWISSWATCH is a watch with sluggish second hand, like in the Swiss railway stations.
It's starts is possible always in terminal, see picture below.

On the desktop it looks like in the picture below.

Is there any possibility to start such an app without using a part of the task panel? Closing the app in the panel, closed the app on the desktop too.

Thanks for any help / idea.
Regards,
Klaus

PS: my System

Kernel: 6.1.0-17-amd64 arch: x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: Xfce v: 4.18.1
    Distro: Debian GNU/Linux 12 (bookworm)

Hello and welcome.

Try running it like this (requires the wmctrl package):

swisswatch & sleep 1 && wmctrl -r swisswatch -b add,skip_taskbar

Thanks ToZ.
It has done it as proposed by you.
I put Swisswatch to start by LOGIN, it open it but still stays in the panel.
Closing the app and restarting it directly over the terminal, it is doing correctly. Strange and to be honest, I did not understand the difference.

I wrote a Swisswatch.sh, starting it by LOGIN and it works without problems.
Thanks again.
Regards
