What third party extension will put an icon on the desktop when I minimize a window?

Sawfish specific, none that I'm aware of. There's a general one, targeted to EWMH compliant WMs ( http://backstep.sourceforge.net/ ) but the last time I've tried it didn't worked correctly with Sawfish. I don't recall right now what was the defect tho... ^__^ - Aav 14:21, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
Forgot about this page: http://www.merlin.org/sawfish/ Never tried it myself, look for icons.jl - Aav 15:28, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
maybe rox is too much if you only need a minimized icon on the deskop, but rox provides this functionality Janek Kozicki 13:44, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

backstep... Edit

I seem to have found why backstep does not work. I was messing around in sawfish with the program "wmctrl", which lets you send commands to the window manager through its EWMH implemntation. The HIDDEN(aka, iconified) flag does not appear to be implemented, because when I tried to use it, sawfish did not respond. This leads me to believe this is why it does not work currently.
