    Weird temporary tasks on taskbar in KDE


    I have a weird temporary tasks/processes in the taskbar after running an application (e.g. Dolphin, VLC, Chrome). It takes a sec for Doplhin and Chrome but for VLC it takes several seconds and can be quite annoying as there could be many of them when I click (and therefore play) on the .mp3 file few times. I enclose a screenshot of the taskbar after clicking twice on the .mp3 file.


    How to get rid of these unnecessary tasks?

    Have you played with the task manager settings? I wonder if grouping by program name might help?

    I have now but it didn't work. Knowing now the name of the widget (task manager) I was able to find another topic but none of the pieces of advise worked for me.
    I've tried removing the panel and adding it again and changing the mentioned file (I don't have the lines they suggest to delete).

    So the problem's open. Weird that I can't find any solution. It doesn't seem that I'm the only person to have this "problem". Perhaps I'm the only one annoyed by it.
