I use netbeans in Ubuntu Natty. I have added it in the launcher and it works. But there is an issue. When I start netbeans it shows two Icons. One is for the launcher and the other for the active netbeans (the latter's icon is with little white triangle). Is there a workaround?


There is a netbeans plugin that works around this problem: http://plugins.netbeans.org/plugin/40321/unity-launcher
