I would like Deluge to start upon each startup, so I put deluge-gtk in Startup Applications. Now there is the window appearing each time, and I would like that it starts minimised, only with the notification area icon. Is there a way to do that?

Seems that before it could be set in the Preferences, and there was also a command line string to do it, but these features are gone.

If you start deluge from command line it will start in the tray.

The option is still there in the preferences, and works perfectly (tested with Ubuntu 11.04 classic gnome):

Interface page, System Tray section: Start in tray.
