I'm trying to set it up such that after I open Pidgin, the application opens without showing an icon in the unity launcher.
Because Pidgin already has a way to open the window through the top-bar, I don't want the pidgin icon wasting space on the launcher, even after it's open.
I tried modifying the
.desktop file as explained in this question, adding this line to my
By this the application will only be shown in GNOME, XFCE, or KDE but not in Unity.
However it doesn't seem to have any effect. Is it because Pidgin is a special application that also launches through the top-bar or something? I was able to change the icon and other things, but I can't keep it from appearing on the side launcher.
Thanks in advance.
