Re: tint2 - request for feedback

I haven't seen this first-hand with my current system, but we've had quite a few threads about utilities launching, putting an icon in the systray, and not releasing the real estate when the icon goes away.  (I had seen this with xfce4-power-manager when I still had my netbook; I understand there's a Google appointment application that does this, and I'm sure there are many others.)  From what I've read at the tint2 project mailing lists, this is a gtk issue, but if it's possible to have tint2 work around it, that might make many users here happy.

I haven't done much research into this, but I was thinking if the systrays in gnome-panel and xfce4-panel don't have this problem, it might help to look at their code...

Re: tint2 - request for feedback

Since tint2 is not a Window Manager or Desktop manager I  moved it here.

Welcome to Crunchbang ov, hope you get the feedback you are looking for.

Re: tint2 - request for feedback

^ This actually raises a question relevant to my previous post.  Is the systray problem WM-dependent?  Are the systray applications better behaved in, for example, XFWM4 or Gnome than they are in Openbox?

Re: tint2 - request for feedback

Just tickled pink to read this is all. 

I had seen that not much had happened with tint2 development, but sometimes things are made so well that they can remain pretty much the same.  I have been trying to crunchify a debian testing net install with xfce4 tray and also have plank on a siduction netbook with lxqt and openbox.  But, I knew deep in my heart that I had no problems with tint2 on my stable #! and liked the amount and size and placement of the information and access that it displayed. 

Thanks

Thanks for keeping tint2 alive.  New bug submitted for "panel_layer = normal" configuration.

Re: tint2 - request for feedback

Many thanks for all effort on tint2 ov and the guys behind it.

I just wish tint2 to read and provide tooltip only the application name on mause over eg:  spacefm.desktop or simple spacefm just like do with TASK, for taskbar but you very well explained that seems difficult, perhaps impossible? who know one day may be possible.

Your posting for the closeness of tint2 with dock gives me a hope. You know man, all Docks application are so and so, they eat a lot memory even cpu, tint2 suck just 0.2mb, i can tell you tint2 beat all docks applications with a punch. smile

Wish many more success in tint2 fantastic project.
Kindly regards,
/Nili

Re: tint2 - request for feedback

I didn't mean to sound negative, I am just trying to understand why someone would prefer it that way. Maybe for a text-only panel? Or is there another reason than aesthetics? Sometimes people choose impractical workarounds for problems that have better solutions.
