After installing Kubuntu 11.04, the system tray has gone wild. It contains network manager, volume etc. icons, but applications cannot add theirs. For example Skype status icon positions itself in the top left screen corner; Pidgin icon floats in a small window on the desktop. What could be wrong?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04. I just installed HP drivers for my printer tonight, and now my laptop is acting a little "buggy". Some applications have froze, and my system tray icons are getting messed up. Sometimes the little power button dissapears and my username appears there instead, but it's not clickable. This means I have to shut down by using the power button on my laptop.
Also, as I am typing this message, the letters onscreen are lagging quite a bit behind my actual typing. It's as if there's something running in the background that is slowing everything down and messing things up.
I removed the bottom panel and killed gnome-panel process. After that the icons are shown in random order on the panel. The clock is sometimes in the middle, sometimes at the end. This is very annoying I locked it to the panel, but it keeps moving randomly after restart. And I can't move it after the panel is loaded.
Since I installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick in a new computer (my lab's computer), there are three broken icons in the system tray. They are black rectangles, with white borders, and a forbidden sign in the middle. I can't figure out what program is related to them, and they don't respond to left or right click. Can anyone point me in some direction? I thought about using programs like xprop/xwininfo to figure out what program they are related to and kill it, but these don't work for system tray, only for windows.
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: download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/46/openSUSE_11.3/ download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/KDE_Release_46_openSUSE_11.3/ packman.unixheads.com/suse/11.3/
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.
I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 (was having similar issues in 10.04 too) on his PC and generally it's working just fine. The problem is system tray icons disappears/rearranges automatically but the biggest issue is that NetworkManager applet icon disappears and somehow internet stops working every now and then...Is there any way to "weld" NetworkManager etc icons to the Gnome Panel/taskbar ? so that they can not be removed without entering the password?
No applications will show in my system tray anymore except the defaults. I've checked the entries and touching those had no effect. In fact, the programs I lost the icons too were in the entries, under "system tray settings" and so I set them to all always show. After doing so the applications actually disappeared from my entries entirelSome of my applications open up directly to the tray and I can't get to them at all anymore! They were all working previously until I moved my panels around.
I just installed linux Mint 9 and having problems with the system tray icons. Im missing the netowork manager icon, mintupdate icon and more. They are checked in the startup applications and I dont get them until i run manually for example nm-applet etc. Its like many of the startup applications are not running. But i do have for example a network connection even if i dont see the applet icon.
I noticed that some applications, like Amarok and KTorrent, do not get minimized in the tray when I close them. They don't shutdown either, they just disappear from the taskbar and do not show up in the tray icon space. If I execute "amarok" in the terminal, it says "Amarok is already running!" and then executes.
It's weird because Thunderbird and Virtualbox both show up as tray icons when I launch them.
This has been bothering me for a very long while now, but not enough for me to bother asking about it. I've looked up about the grey background in the tray in lucid, but I can't find anything where all my icons have the wrong background. This happened after I upgraded from karmic, and the problem only exists with the new themes.
I don't know but just one day after I restarted my ubuntu 10.10 pc. Probably after an update. Dropbox no longer shows up in the top panel. I also had a thing called googsystray, that no longer shows up either. I can see the process dropbox is running.
This is how my Firestarter and Pidgin icons appear in the tray against a panel using an image background, even though the icons are transparent. What can be done to fix this? According to this five year old thread, GTK libraries didn't support transparency in the tray area back then, but surely this must've been fixed by now? There are even some links to bugfixes in that very thread, but I'm hesitant to apply something that old. What to do?
I was trying to make my surround sound work and screwed things up. Anyways, one of them is the one with the vertical slider and the other one is the one with the horizontal slider. I want to get rid of the one with the vertical slider. How do I do this? (The one with the vertical slider is in the part where the "tray-ed" programs go). When I use my keyboard volume up and volume down buttons, I notice that the two controls respond APPROXIMATELY the same where one is slightly ahead of the other. If more information is needed, just ask.
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?
With the installation of 11.4, my video driver changed over to the nouveau driver from the proprietary nVidia driver. Now I get a grid of vertical lines following my curser in both KDE and Gnome, a similar grid over icons and as background fill in KDE. In KDE the grid lines appear over icons within application windows. Is anyone else seeing these? Or, not seeing them while using the nVidia driver?
Somewhere along the line while trying to reset the Ubuntu panels i lost the system tray getting the message in the title . Now , when i log on and get to the desktop i have no way to get anywhere else . Managed to get on - line via Help icon on log off screen . Is there any way for me to get these functions back without re - installing from scratch ?
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?
Is anyone else getting a non-transparent icon in the system tray when TrueCrypt 6.3a loads on Ubuntu 10.04 with the default theme? Annoying white bars on the top and bottom of the icon. This didn't occur with the same version of TrueCrypt on previous versions of Ubuntu. Any way to resolve it? It looks out of place...
installed winxp on my virtualbox. since i use virtualbox all day cause i run an important program from windowsxp i was wondering if i can minimize virtualbox to systemtray. it uses too much space in Windows List
I've done some searching through google and can't seem to find a fix for this.
I installed skype on my computer and couldn't figure out where the tray icon went after i closed the main window so I started playing around with all my taskbars and stuff. Being new to ubuntu and all (I'm using version 11.04 with the gnome theme) i accidentally deleted the Skype icon, my windows list on the bottom and everything up top. I successfully restored my windows list and have system monitor so i can easily kill skype if i accidentally restore it (i haven't been able to figure out how to restore the icon up there) and got rid of all my stuff in the top right corner. Upon reboot everything returned except for my shutdown/restart/log off list which i loved (it fit in esthetically and had all the options).
