Hide the GrowlTunes menu bar icon
Authored by: leamanc on Jan 04, '10 08:44:55PM

Works for me...Snow Leopard 10.6.2, Growl/GrowlTunes 1.2, and I also quit GrowlTunes before running the command.

This is very nice, because GrowlTunes' menu does very little besides take up space.

Now I would like for HardwareGrowler to not show up in my Dock or in the cmd-tab app switcher. Need to try that old hint that makes an app not display in the Dock. If that works, I will be a 100% happy Growl user.

(As a side note, Apple should really just buy Growl and incorporate it into the OS. I can't imagine OS X without it anymore, and other modern OSes are incorporating similar notification functionality.)

I had some problems the first time I tried it. You'll know if it's worked if a com.growl.growltunes entry appears in ~/Library/Preferences. I'm not 100% how many tries it took me to get it working, but sounds like quitting GrowlTunes first will help.

Also note that if it's been successful the command

defaults read com.growl.growltunes
returns the expected results.

Pays to double-check spelling too, I mucked it up first time round. ;)

You can also try defaults write / defaults read with the -v switch to get some more useful feedback if you're still having issues.

Still doesn't work for me.

defaults read com.growl.growltunes


GrowlTunesWithoutMenu = 1;

as expected. Any help?
