When running UNE 10.10 I often have several applications running which on a traditional GNOME desktop environment would be running purely in the background and would only be visible from the system tray. Good examples would be tomboy when hidden or redshift.

Unfortunately Unity shows a running application in the launcher (dock) for these applications even though they already have appindicators visible in the sys tray.

Is there any way to configure/force Unity not to show icons in the dock for certain applications?

I haven't tried it with Unity myself, but you should be able to use Devil's Pie to hide them.
