kdocker - Dock any application in the system tray
KDocker will help you dock any application in the system tray. This means you
can dock openoffice, xmms, firefox, thunderbolt, eclipse, anything! Just point
and click. Works for both KDE and GNOME (In fact it should work for most modern
window managers that support NET WM Specification. I believe it works for XFCE,
All you need to do is start KDocker and select an application using the mouse
and lo! the application gets docked into the system tray. The application can
also be made to dissappear from the task bar.
KDocker supports the KDE System Tray Protocol and the System Tray Protocol from
Very few apps have docking capabilities (e.g. Yahoo! and XMMS don't have any).
Even if they do, sometimes they are specific to desktops (working on KDE but
not on GNOME, and vice versa). KDocker will help you dock any application in
the system tray. This means you can dock OpenOffice.org, XMMS, Firefox,
Thunderbird, etc. Just point and click. It works for KDE, GNOME, XFCE, and
probably many more.
Notice: If you use it with xmms, so you must after hide xmms to move
the window on Your Desktop by using Alt+Left Mouse Button.
