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...
I installed Skype only because it is necessary to Pidgin to handle the Skype service/protocol. I use Pidgin for many protocols included the IRC, so I don't need Skype icon in the system tray at all. Honestly I hate Skype, but unfortunately it seems that all the world use it. how to take off that terrible icon/indicator/applet from the systray. I searched in all system to find a configuration file, I opened few named Skype using vi to avoid to damage them, but I have not found nothing interesting for my scope. PS: don't tell me how I will switch on or off Skype, because a plug-in of Pidgin do it w/o user interaction.
Ubuntu 10.10, fairly fresh install. The order of the icons in the system tray changes each time I reboot. It's worked fine since install a few weeks ago until today when I booted and the wireless wouldn't connect. I rebooted and they came up in a different order so I rebooted again and the order changed yet again. Maybe I should just keep rebooting until I find an order I'm happy with then never switch my machine off.I've attached a printscreen to show what I mean.
I am trying to find a way to put an icon in the system tray and run a bash command every time I click on the icon.
Purpose: I want to set up a system tray icon that will hide/unhide the desktop when clicked, much as would the standard desktop panel plugin for the various panel apps like lxpanel, gnome panel, etc.
Why don't I just use a panel app?
I am using a very reduced install of Ubuntu Lucid oriented towards first time PC users on very old hardware, using Openbox as the window manager and Tint2 with lxlauncher instead of a panel, the latter both compiled from latest source for some slight customization. Tint2 is a taskbar that also features a built in clock applet and system tray which I have chosen after examining basically all other alternatives and chosen for its light footprint and customization. It gives me everything I need except a single click hide/show-desktop feature or a halt/reboot/logout menu. lxlauncher is a very lightweight alternative to the Ubuntu Netbook Remix netbook-launcher (and/or netbook-launcher-efl) package that conforms to the freedesk specifications and occupies all free deskspace other than tint2, under all other windows. I used the freedesk specs to set up a "shutdown" menu category and created shutdown.desktop reboot.desktop and logout.desktop files in the category to add that feature, using dbus commands for the first two and 'openbox --exit' for the latter.
I set the openbox config to open all app windows maximized with no decoration, so each app takes up the whole screen other than tint2 and can only be closed by right clicking on its icon in tint2 or by its file->Quit menu.
This gives me a kind of OLPC for grown ups with no computer experience. In other words, for people who don't know what a desktop or window is. This is similar to the Ubuntu Netbook Remix except that in UNR they superimpose the window decorations over the gnome panel so you can still close the window.
However, the one problem here is that to see lxlauncher when one has several apps running, one has to click on each app in tint2 to minimize it. I would like to add a system tray icon to make this possible with one click without adding too much more overhead to the existing setup.
Here is a screen cap of the desktop:
BTW, I will use wmctrl to test the desktop visibility state and toggle it using this bash command: test 'wmctrl -m | grep ON' && wmctrl -k on || wmctrl -k off
how to get an icon in the system tray and run the above command when clicked will be appreciated
P.S. I've looked at 'zenity --notification --listen' but running a command when the icon is clicked in this case is a pending feature for the app and not yet implemented. My last resort will be to learn C and try that.
OpenSuSE 11.4 --- 126.96.36.199-0.5-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-04-25 21:48:33 +0200 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux So recently in the last couple of days my NetworkManager Icon has disappeared from the "System Tray" on the Taskbar, even after a reboot. I have tried doing: Alt+F2 then typing "nm-applet" and nothing happens. Also tried in the terminal typing "nm-applet" and I get:
An instance of nm-applet is already running. I am connected to the internet so I know it is working but how do I get the icon back? I would like to be able to switch between connection types (i.e. wlan0 or eth0 etc...) but can't do it without it (well easily anyway, probably could switch through the terminal but I would rather not). Also, on another note I remember earlier in the week reading a post that someone had the same problem, and they told him to Alt-F2 and type "nm-applet", which did work for me once but now it is not.
***And I do remember accidentally deleting something involving NetworkManager from the "Startup Applications" app. Can't remember exactly what it said but I do remember it had the word "-disable" at the end of the command. --> If anyone has NetworkManager icon in their system tray could you please look at your "Startup Applications" and tell me what the one for NetworkManager's command says?
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.
I'm running Kubuntu Meerkat. If I set skype to start minimized automatically, it seems that it's running but there's no way to get to it. It shows up in the process list but there's no icon for it in the taskbar or anywhere else on the screen. Even worse, I can't just kill and restart it; if I kill it, it just comes back. If I issue the skype command from the K menu or from a command line, I get a complaint that another instance is already running.
It was working until a recent update. I have the icon in my system tray. Networkmanager is running. I have tried to reboot the computer and restart the network manager. All switches that could turn the network off is on. Every time I click on the icon in the system tray it tell me the networkmanager is disabled.
I do have internet cause I am using it on W7. The only thing that I have done different is I left the pc on over night so I guess it went to suspend for the first time. Then I powered off. After turning the pc back on and logging in I have no internet. Not even with the Ethernet plugged directly in. There is supposed to be a little blue light on when it sees the wireless and that is off. When I click on the networking icon in the system tray it says networking disabled. It shows no wireless. When I plug directly in I still get nothing. I'm using 10.04
It always shows a same icon, for every application which shows message tray icon. I just did some shell extension work after fresh installation of F15, nothing related on message tray. Don't know how to change it back.Dose anyone knows how to customize message tray icon for gnome-shell?
I am relatively new at Linux and am having some problems with an install of openSUSE 11.2. I installed 11.2 on my Thinkpad X31 dual boot with WinXP. It seems to work very well except the network. I looked up swerdna's instructions on setting network cards up. I used YaST to try and set the system up as described in swerdna's instructions. Everything looks fine my network card and wireless card show up in the overview settings screen and everything sets up fine. But when I exit YaST the network doest show up no icon in the system tray and it doesn't even try to connect.
I did go into hardware to see if it was identifying my hardware and my network card shows up as "Thinkpad R40" and the wireless shows up as Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b. As far as I know this is correct. I have tried three other distro's and this one has gotten the closest to working so far.
As in the title - When I use truecrypt it (normally) puts an icon in the systray. I need to click on this icon when i've finished with the volume in order to unmount the volume and exit the program. This is very important as I share this volume across computers and it can't be mounted on more than one at a time.
However the icon does not play with the new unity DE, not showing up at all, and leaving me with only one option - to open a terminal and find and kill all TC processes. Obviously killing processes in this way is technically not ideal and is time consuming too.
I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on a laptop of mine, and also a desktop. On this laptop, it's a clean install and I'm having a weird issue with the panel on the top of thescreen.ometimes when I start up the computer and login, I get two noticeable quirks. Instead of having the wireless icon in the tray next to the volume, I have two volume controls next to each other.The one icon, that takes place of the wireless icon, is not functional.The other volume icon functions as normal.
The other quirk is that my power button, used for choosing to logout, shutdown,etc,isappears. Instead, it shows two of my username next to each other (one is the legitimate one that lets you set your away status and such). And in place of the power button, is another username menu, but it is cut off by the edge of the screen and doesn't function.Has anybody had this problem before? Is there some kind of package I can update or reinstall to try fixing this? Sometimes the power button will be fine, but the volume icon will still double up.
Anyone know how device-mapper works, or can someone point me to any docco (other than the man page)?
Couple years ago I wrote a TrueCrypt wrapper script for use on Puppy Linux, and am reworking it for Ubuntu. Puppy sometimes didn't have the 'dmsetup' device-mapper utility available, but TrueCrypt still works without this when the '-m nokernelcrypto' option is used.
My script notices when dmsetup is available and skips this option. When the TC volume gets mounted (somehow using dmsetup), the Desktop icon is labled with the leaf name of the /media/mount_point -- so far, so good.
However, if I force the script to add the no-kernel-crypto option, and the TC volume is mounted without using dmsetup, the Desktop icon ls labled with the size of the volume. Say what?
Running df shows the difference between the two mounts is whether /dev/mapper is used. So *how is* dmsetup making this happen? The manpage isn't much help. Is it just the 'rename' sub-command? I am unable to find any details about this mechanism.
I have done a fair bit of Googling first but with no success...I am using PS3Media server to stream audio, video etc to my PlayStation. It works very well indeed on the PS3 end, but I have a slight annoyance that is messing with the nice look and feel of my Ubuntu desktop: The PS3 Media Server icon seems to have a grey background, whereas my panels all have dark transparency, this makes it stand out a mile.Is there any way of altering this icon? I was looking in the ..../pms-linux-1.10.5 folder but couldn't find much there.
I'm using Parcellite right now since whenever I copy something from Firefox and close it before pasting, whatever I copied is gone. Parcellite fixes this, but I don't want it to be on my tray all the time. How can I hide it?
I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid. I need to find the icon image files used by the Gnome panel tray apps, specifically, Banshee (see attached screenshot). It's not in /usr/share/pixmaps, as that banshee icon is used for the panflute launch button, not the Banshee tray icon. I imagine it would be where all the other tray icons are (volume, battery, etc). I'm looking for it so I can try editing it to fix the white background.
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? Hidden...
I have probllem with Insync (google drive synchronisation).I instaled insync and insync-nautilus, synchronisation was started, but I haven't icon in tray ( upper right corner of the screen ).My system that Debian 8.3 32Bit.
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.
I'm searching for a tool that can show current keyboard layout in GNOME tray panel. As I reminded there was such tool for KDE, but at this time I'm using GNOME and it's a really problem to find such stuff. Is there any tool for GNOME (showing keyboard layout tray icon) like in KDE?
Well, I had recently removed every single file regarding banshee, and when I reinstalled it, the tray icon turned into this (I pressume I removed the tray icon as well and it didn't "return after" reinstalling banshee): How can I fix this and bring the tray icon back? I've tried reinstalling it, even installing newer (sometimes unstable) versions, and it didn't work.
In the XP version of Thunderbird, a try icon appears when new mail arrives. I noticed in the Linux version I don't get the tray icon. Is there anyway of getting it to show or is it not available in the Linux version?
