Still too high to leave running by default on this one.
I think you mean 750 ms and 2500 ms, right?

Yes, you are correct.
Corrected, in the original post.

The Task Manager is a nice tool.
The running graph of history is handy.
The T-M is still available by double-clicking
on the Xfce4-Sensors-plugin.

I use the xfce4-sensors-plugin in the task bar
and the Task-Manager shows cpu% at 0.00% for the plugin.

I made it executable , copied it in the /usr/bin (see attached screnshoot) and created a startup entry.

But it executes as maximized not minimized :frown:

any idea ?

I can't find a way to start minimized; however,
if you reduce the window to it's smallest and
then close with the X in the top right corner
it will start at that size.

Perhaps, talk to the developer.

Try copying it back to your home folder, make sure it is still executable and belongs to your user name. In the image you show it belonging to root, but you are calling it as regular user.

find a way to start minimized

Hmm, is this launchstring effective in achieving minimized startup?

Code: Select all

Exec=xfce4-taskmanager & sleep 2 & xdotool windowminimize $(wmctrl -l | grep -e "Task Manager" | awk '{print $1}')
nope.
another attempt:

Code: Select all

xfce4-taskmanager & sleep 2 & $(wmctrl -l | grep -e "Task Manager" | awk '{print $1}') 2> /dev/null & xdotool windowminimize `!!`
it's a fun puzzle, eh...

=================

try the following (works for me when I use similar to launch+minimize mate's SystemMonitor)

Code: Select all

xfce4-taskmanager & sleep 2 && xdotool windowminimize $(wmctrl -l | grep -e "Task Manager" | awk '{print $1}')
