Since the change of the toolbox being a add-on to the image-window
instead of being the application-window (like in earlier times) the
toolbox remains visible on the desktop.
No problem here with Linux as the window capabilities are
property of the window manager (KDE, Gnome et al)
I'd like to know how you are doing that, Frank. I'm using 2.6.3 on a
slackware 12 box, and I cannot minimize the toolbox: there is no minimize
icon, and when I right click the title bar, Minimize is grayed out.
Using the White Box
Edit ->Preferences -> Window Management -> Hint for the toolbox -> change
to 'Normal window' -> click OK
You must restart Gimp for the 'minimize' button to appear in the toolbox.
Wonderful! Danke Sehr!
