Debian Multimedia :: Empty System Tray At KDE Startup

Jun 7, 2010

Occasionally I get on lenny an empty system tray when logging in KDE, no right click menu, no icons. The previous session had been closed regularly. Is there a way to properly shutdown in the circumstances and to fix the problem?

(I don't know whether this has something to do with this but, in the past, on typing by mistake the print screen key, I got multiple instances of ksnapshot launched automatically and had to delete the directory under 'home' ~/.kde/share/config/session and the file ~/.kde/share/config/ksmserverrc to prevent this from repeating itself at every KDE login. The empty tray issue, however did not arise immediately after this, so it might be unrelated.)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Kmix In System Tray Disappeared

Mar 27, 2011

I don't know what I did, or maybe it was some update. I'm running Kubuntu Maverick 64-bit. Kmix in system tray disappeared. Sometimes it shows up after some long time, but I haven't seen it for the last month. Kmix process still runs, and it takes one entire thread of my Intel i3 processor. Killing kmix and restarting it does not change anything. Sound applications work as expected, but I cannot change volume. They work well also when I kill kmix. When I invoke kmix from xterm, I get the following messages:

QMetaObject::invokeMethod: No such method KMixApp::
Bus::open: Can not get ibus-daemon's address.
IBusInputContext::createInputContext: no connection to ibus-daemon
kmix(12181) Mixer::setGlobalMaster: Mixer::setGlobalMaster() card= "PulseAudio::Playback_Devices:1" control= "alsa_output.pci-0000_00_1b.0.analog-stereo"
kmix(12181) MixerToolBox::initMixer: Looking for mixers with the : "PulseAudio" driver
kmix(12181) Mixer_PULSE::Mixer_PULSE: Probing for PulseAudio...

<unknown program name>(12180)/: Communication problem with "kmix" , it probably crashed.
Error message was: "org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply" : " "Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken." ".

At the same time, phonom complains that some devices have disappeared (they do not show up in other places anymore):
Internal Audio Digital Stereo (IEC 95)
Internal Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI)
Internal Audio Analog Surround 5.1
What should I do to get my mixer back?

Debian :: Create DSL Connection From System Tray

Nov 5, 2015

I have decided to install Debian 8.2 in my desktop. I am test driving it in virtual box find and solve any problem I may face later on. The isp I use provides me with a shared ip every time and I have to create a DSL connection with username and password to connect to it. I can create the connection from the gui connection manager using "nm-connection-editor" command in Debian.

I am using elementary os freya and I can do so from the system tray at the top right. So, I wanted to do the same in debian also. But I can only create VLAN, VPN, Bridge, Team and Bond. There is no option for DSL but if I create one in the way mentioned before, it appears as a profile under "Wired" network option in system tray. I read some post regarding network option in system tray but I could not make them work and other I did not understand. In KDE window manager I have this feature but I want to use gnome 3.

The volume control in the Gnome panel system tray has disappeared from my wife's Ubuntu 10.04 system with the master volume set to zero.I was able to restore sound via System->Preferences->Sound master volume, but this is not particularly convienent. How do I restore the panel volume control? (the speaker icon on the panel, between the Network arrows and Chat/Mail setup icons).

Debian Configuration :: Klipper Icon Has Disappeared From The System Tray

Jul 2, 2010

I'm running squeeze. The klipper icon has disappeared from the system tray and I can't figure out how to restore it. The service is running. Stopping and starting it has no effect. Changing the display options for the system tray has no effect. I can bring the klipper dialog up with Ctrl-Alt-V but there are no options available regarding the system tray.

It's obviously a user configuration issue since if I login as root the klipper icon is displayed. I tried to copy the klipper configuration file contents from root to user, but that also had no effect, except to alter some non-relevant options. I haven't been able to locate any other configuration files that might be relevant. This seems to be a not uncommon problem with klipper, but the causes seem to differ. I haven't found any solutions vi Google.

Debian Multimedia :: Only One Tray Icon Per Application?

Jul 30, 2015

I have a multi-platform QT4 application and I'm trying to make it run on Debian 7.x. In this app I'm creating 2 QSystemTrayIcon 's and when I run this application on Debian 7.8 with Gnome 3 disabled both tray icons show up nicely in the notification area in the top-right panel. However when I have Gnome 3 enabled nothing shows up in the top-right panel and the tray icon shows up in the (hidden) bottom panel, but the problem is only the first one of my 2 tray icons shows up - the other one is lost.

I'd like to ask, whether it is by design so, that on Gnome 3+Debian 7.8 there can be only one tray icon per application? Or is it some issue with Qt? I tried also Ubuntu 14.04 with Gnome 3 and there both tray icons showed up nicely in the top-right panel.

Debian Multimedia :: Some Icons Missing In Gnome Tray

Nov 26, 2014

I use Debian Jessie which includes a gnome shell version 3.14.1. The problem is that icons of some applications such as Viber or Starcal are not shown in the tray while the icons of other applications (e.g. Skype of Dropbox) are shown without problem.

By the way, the problem does not relate to loading, because all applications are loaded and a space is considered for each in the tray, but the problem is that for some of applications the pictures of their icons are not shown.

All qt4 apps tray icons are missing. Debian decided to drop sni-qt support and wmsystemtray is actually piece of shit. Also I can't even use ubuntu version of sni-qt, because it also needs to have patched version of qt4, but debian refused to include that patches. What should I do to make skype icon visible in kde5 tray?

Debian Multimedia :: No Tray Icon Spotify-team Viewer

Oct 17, 2015

i have a problem with both spotify and teamviewer. Both of them work just fine but when i close the main window they keep going in background (as they should) but, not showing any tray icon, if i want to close them i have to manually kill them in a terminal. For teamviewer there's an option to choose to completely close the program by closing the windows but i would like to have the possibility of having the app working in background with a tray icon!!!

Spotify gave me the same problem but i read on spotify community that is a bug of the current version. Still i'd like to solve the problem with teamviewer.I had a similar problem with skype and i solved getting a plugin from but for teamviewer i don't see anything similar...

Debian Multimedia :: KRDC - Connect To ComboBox Is Empty

Nov 26, 2014

I've installed krdc in Debian 7 amd64 desktop (with KDE), but I cannot connect to anything with it:

"Connect to" combobox is empty. Entering "rdp://Username@" shows messagebox "The entered address cannot be handled". "Plugins" list is empty. "apt-cache search krdc" does not suggest any kind of "-plugn"'s that I could install. Deleting "~/.kde/share/config/krdcrc" does not work.

If launched inside terminal, it outputs this:

Code: Select allkrdc(30434)/kdecore (trader) KServiceTypeTrader::defaultOffers: KServiceTypeTrader: serviceType  "KRDC/Plugin"  not found
krdc(30434)/kdeui (kdelibs): Attempt to use QAction "remote_desktop_dockwidget" with KXMLGUIFactory!

What's that "KRDC/Plugin" and how to fix it.

Installed packaged:

Code: Select allapt-cache policy krdc
  Installed: 4:4.8.4-1+b1
  Candidate: 4:4.8.4-1+b1
  Version table:
 *** 4:4.8.4-1+b1 0
        500 wheezy/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

While rdesktop is installed and works OK, krdc looks like is dead-unsusable. Or at least it's usibility is hidden somewhere.

How do I make it work? Or should I report a bug?

Ubuntu :: Teamviewer On Startup - Starts With Only An Icon In The Tray

Jul 6, 2011

I use Team Viewer a lot. In Windows, if you have it set to start with Windows, it starts with only an icon in the tray. On my daughters Acer netbook running Edubuntu Natty, when I set it to start with the computer it opens the full program. My question is how do I set it so it still starts but without being intrusive?

Ubuntu :: Getting Nm-applet Out Of System Tray

Aug 16, 2011

I dont use Network Manager to connect, but the nm-applet wireless icon wont go out of the system tray. Ive tried to do it through the GUI by unchecking Network Manager in the startup applications: didnt work. I tried to do it by editing the .desktop files in /.config/autostart and /etc/xdg/autostart: didnt work. I deleted all the .desktop files: didnt work. I can get rid of it by killing nm-applet, but then it comes back next time I log in. Is there any way to get rid of this stupid thing outside of purging Network Manager?

OpenSUSE :: KDE 4.6 System Tray - Vanishing Icons?

Feb 8, 2011

I have a few problems with my openSUSE 11.3 (I were using openSUSE 9 ages ago, then I moved to Debian, jet after few years I though way not to give openSUSE another chance ).

Basically all is great except for 1 little annoying problem - system tray.Applications like Amarok, Network Manager, SUSE updater, etc just does not show up in system tray! Amarok keeps playing music after I minimalize it to tray, but its no where to be found XD.

I'm using the following repositories:

Do you know a command for zypper to install newest packages, ignoring branding (from who package is)? That is one of things that truly is a pain, and which I never experienced while using Debian.
