I'm running Ubuntu 12.10. Pidgin starts automatically on startup, but I want the buddy list window to starts minimized.
but none of them work. I mean they work, the buddy list is minimized on startup, but after that, I can't open it, looks like it is forced to be minimized.
Is there any working solution?
I found the solution:
First, install devilspie
sudo apt-get install devilspie
Make a new file called pidgin.ds in /home/username/.devilspie:
(if (is (window_name) "Buddy List") (begin (minimize) ) )
Add devilspie to launchpad. Done!
