due to the #! forums, I've now used some of the tiling wm's and I like them quite all.
The only problem is, that I'm heavily use VPN's (OpenVPN) and I'm not able to set my configs and certificates up without nm-applet and I can't run or use it for example with my Scrotum … errrm, sorry, with SpectrWM.
Is there a way to fake a tray with a terminal, or config it via bash?
Sure, I googled it, but it may be my mistake to not know the correct search phrases and my english skillz are also very low.
I don't ask for a detailed instruction, a small hint in the correct direction will be enough for me.
Thanks in advance and cheers
I use stalonetray. Trayer is another option.

You know...I've always wondered this myself but never got around to asking. I'm a Scrotwm user myself(this WM will always be known as Scotwm to me, screw the name SpectrWM...), and what I've been doing when I have to edit a connection, which isn't very often, is simply log back into OB for a minute or two and do whatever I need to then log right back into Scrot.
Which this method has served me just fine, but surely there's gotta be a simple and easy to use Cli-based app that can be used to do this with...
We are a nice, friendly community here and I hope we stay that way.
What I used to do was to use a simple system tray application - xystray, or trayer in my case - and set up the .spectrwm.conf file such that:
1. A quirk so that it would float
2. Autostart on workspace 10
That way the tray is out of site, out of mind. Spectrwm handles the systray messages really well so that most do not fill the screen.

floating quirk for tint2, as wingpanel maybe? http://crunchbanglinux.org/wiki/howto/m … _wingpanel
and what I've been doing when I have to edit a connection, which isn't very often, is simply log back into OB for a minute or two and do whatever I need to then log right back into Scrot.
That should fix my problem. Too complicated for me, to think about this method. Thanks, bro!
The point I forget to mention is, that I'll see nm-applet just for the configuration, after that it should completely disapear. No need for a permanent symbol in the taskbar/tray or somewhere else.
If anyone else does have another method without a permanent symbol and also without the swicht between the WM's, feel free to let me know it. I'll spend some digital bottles of cold beer.
Thanks anyways to all and have a crunchy evening
This is possible with stalonetray, it can handle different OpenVPN confs and certs? Cool. I thought it will be also a have a permanent symbol, because the screenshots on his website imply it.
I'll test it, as soon as I'm back home.
Thank you, Werner. Den Wurstblinker muss ich auch noch eintragen lassen, fällt mir gerade ein.
