My tint2 Getting Squished

For some reason, over a period of time, my tint2 bar keeps getting more and more squished. Also the center divider between for screens 1 and 2 keeps migrating over to the left. This only happens on one of my two monitors. Any ideas what's going on?

Re: My tint2 Getting Squished

Open the tint2 config file and find the '# Panel' section and the line 'panel_size = 100% 30'. The last number (30) is the hight of the panel. Try change it. Save the config file and restart tint2.

The migrating thing I don't know  hmm

@oinkerz:  This sounds familiar; I have a theory.  Could you post a screenshot with Desktop 2 active?  That will help narrow things down.

Re: My tint2 Getting Squished

What exactly is that "30" value so I know what I should try changing it to? I should also note that simply restarting tint2 fixes it temporarily.

When you say post a screenshot, do you mean a screenshot of my entire desktop including both monitors?

Change it to 40 and you'll see wink

Fixes what? The shrinking of the panel or the migration (or both)?

Both monitors may be helpful, but I was thinking just something similar to the one you posted above, only with Desktop 2 active.  My theory is there's some process that's eating up real estate in your systray, and the shading of Desktop 2 in tint2 will show us just how much is being eaten.

Unfortunately changing the value to 40 did not seem to resolve the problem (though I do see now what the value defines!). And when I say "fixes" it, I meant it fixes both.

Here is a screenshot of my entire two monitor's tint2. As you can see, on the left screen (which is not set as the primary) has the 1/2 Desktop line pushed to the left side. Also the little "bell" icon is Chrome Notifications - however I don't think this is the issue as the bar will tend to migrate when I have no notifications.

Re: My tint2 Getting Squished

Well, some process it repeatedly launching, putting a notification in your systray, then terminating without tint2 reclaiming that space. hmm  Xfce4-power-manager has a history of causing this; it's quite conceivable that Chrome Notifications does this as well.  It isn't tint2's fault, it's the applications that place icons in the systray, at least according to this thread at their Google Code site.

Re: My tint2 Getting Squished

It is the Chrome notifications - I'd bet on it anyway.  I started having the same problem.  Every time Chrome displays a notification, it shows up for a second, disappears and keeps that space.  If you disable notifications in Chrome, your problem should be taken care of.
