Do you have 12 virtual desktops or is that a dual monitor screenshot? Knowing your set up may make a difference.

In your compton.conf you can have it exclude apps like conky and tint2 - and some other settings for panels/dock - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Co … ation_file

12 desktops, one monitor. It's a laptop.

What's the advantage of excluding Tint2 in compton?

You won't get the compton effects on any item in the exclude list - no drop shadows etc ...

I exclude conky windows, fvwm modules, and panels in general. I couldn't tell from your screen shot if it was compton messing up tint2 or not.

S11 got you fixed up so it's all good. The only question remaining is: What do you do that requires 12 virtual desktops?  monkey

I tend to do many things at the same time, and I HATE to have to open and close stuff as I go. So I normally have my browser open in my first desktop, and the terminal in the second. Then, I may use open office writer (writing a book), vlc, brewtarget, etc. So far, I've never used all 12 desktops. My maximum has been 9. But now I'm also gonna have kali and windows 7 (solidworks) on Virtualbox, so...

Re: Tint2 Help

Hello and Happy New Year on this help tint2 thread smile

I need a help with tooltip on tint2 vertical Launcher. I am using this code :

# Tint2 config file
# For information on manually configuring tint2 see http://code.google.com/p/tint2/wiki/Configure

# Background definitions

# ID 1
rounded = 2
border_width = 1
background_color = #141414 0
border_color = #929292 0

# Panel
panel_monitor = all
panel_position = left left vertical
panel_items = L
panel_size = 600 48
panel_margin = 5 0
panel_padding = 300 0 
panel_dock = 0
wm_menu = 1
panel_background_id = 0

#strut_policy = follow_size
strut_policy = none

# Launcher
launcher_icon_theme = Buuf-Deuce
launcher_padding = 0 0 8
launcher_background_id = 1
launcher_icon_size = 48
launcher_item_app = /usr/share/applications/spacefm.desktop
launcher_item_app = /usr/share/applications/iceweasel.desktop
launcher_item_app = /usr/share/applications/gthumb.desktop
launcher_item_app = /usr/share/applications/deadbeef.desktop
launcher_item_app = /usr/share/applications/skype.desktop
# End of config

that makes this left tint2 panel as on this image

16180096341_0215fea9a5.jpg

I'm trying to set out a tooltip for those icons, but my efforts are not going, Reading this issue I understand that long ago was a issue, still persists? does tint2 provide tooltip for "L" Launcher?

So, any suggestion if it is possible? Thanks in advance.

Kind regards,
Nili

Re: Tint2 Help

Hello everyone smile

I have tint2 installed on Xubuntu 14.10 and everything except the system tray works, no matter what config I use it just doesn't show wi-fi and battery. It shows running applications like VLC and Steam but none of the important ones.

I have uninstalled xfce4-panel as I was receiving a systray error which does not show any more.

Re: Tint2 Help

Welcome to Xubuntu!

panel_items = LTSBC define the items tint2 will show and the order of those items. panel_items = STC will show the Systray, the taskbar and the clock (from left to right). SVN ONLY.
L to show Launcher
T to show Taskbar
S to show Systray (also called notification area)
B to show Battery status
C to show Clock

Re: Tint2 Help

No network icon? Is xfce4-panel still running?

Re: Tint2 Help

Not at all, quite the opposite. If xfce4-panel would be still running, it would probably swallow those icons in its systray. Have you actually logged out and back again? network-manager is a process started as root, so it might reappear if you log out and back or reboot. I think this might be the best idea for now. If it still doesn't appear, try changing the icon theme, maybe you selected something that has no dedicated icons for network manager (probably not).

Re: Tint2 Help

Hard to say, I haven't played with Xubuntu in a few years. Maybe google-pow:

Re: Tint2 Help

Your config shows:

# SYSTRAYBAR
systray = 1
systray_padding = 0 0 2
systray_background_id = 4  ##<-----this
systray_sort = ascending
systray_icon_size = 0

But you only have 2.

# Background definitions
# ID 1
rounded = 0
border_width = 1
background_color = #2D2D2D 100
border_color = #484848 100

# ID 2
rounded = 0
border_width = 0
background_color = #D64937 100
border_color = #000000 100

Change

systray_background_id = 4

to

systray_background_id = 1

It should work.

EDIT:  OOPS!  Late for the party ... but the above should be fixed up as well.

Re: Tint2 Help

Currently, Google Hangouts extension creates a lot of blank icon spaces in the Tint2 system tray. https://imgur.com/yq1wSuc

After searching a bit, I didn't find any fixes for this issue. I also would accept the alternative solution of PREVENTING Hangouts from appearing in the system tray, but couldn't find any way to do that either. Help?

Followup: Here is how it looks a day later. When it gets this bad, I end up having to restart Tint2.

nicholasalipaz - thanks for the link! I hadn't realized hangouts gave you the option to disable the system tray icon.

Re: Tint2 Help

I also have a problem with my tint2 configuration. The icons of volume, battery, clipboard manager, network and so on sometimes are there and other times they just disappear for a while, and then they come back. It's not couple of seconds, more like a couple of minutes every 5, pretty often.

This is the code.
