Question for the users out there who are much more knowledgable on all this than me...

I have a number of apps open on boot, but they all open as windows, so my screen is filled with windows that I then need to close.

What I would like to do is open these apps straight to the system tray, not as windows. In Ubuntu, it did this automatically. Can I do this in KDE?

If it helps, I'm running Kubuntu 20.04.


as always :)

Me: hey would you let me know about the next event when you organise it? I use email, signal, telegram, mastodon, xmpp...

Friend: I only use Facebook to organise these, ask our mutual friends about the event so you don't miss it.

Is this gonna change any time finally!
