   0.2  

Screenlet

Score 67%
System tray screenlet
zoom


Downloads:  7238
Submitted:  Mar 1 2009
Updated:  Apr 1 2009

Description:

A replacement for the Gnome system tray (aka notification area).

Click on icons to access their options

Click in the gaps between the icons to access screenlet menus

Options

Horizontal or vertical layout

Themes: default, pinstripe, carbon

Notes

Requires python-xlib package.

If the network monitor icon does not appear, right click and select Start network monitor.

Known issues

Does not work properly on Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty) with ATI graphics. Probably due to lack of fglrx driver for X-server 1.6. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

Animated icons (e.g. when searching for a wireless network) may look odd. Increasing the refresh rate setting may help.

Some icons do not return after restarting the screenlet (e.g. nm-applet).




Changelog:

0.1:
-Initial release

0.1.1:
-Fixed bug which prevented rendering of the background

0.1.2:
-Compatible with universal-applets

0.1.3:
-Added michote's code to allow fully transparent background
-Screenlet now conforms to XEMBED 0.5 specification. Most icons will return on restart. There is a list of known good/bad icons in the code.

0.2:
-Horizontal or vertical layout
-Added carbon theme

 Not looking so good on Jaunty

I'm trying this out in Jaunty, but it doesn't look so hot: there are horizontal lines running through it and it flashes on every refresh. The first draw is OK, but it's all downhill from there. Any thoughts on what might be happening?

Hi,

I have just tested this with a fresh install of Jaunty Beta. 'Out of the box' the screenlet works for me, but only with an opaque background. With a transparent background behaviour is erratic. Once Compiz was enabled (also requiring nvidia drivers on my system) everything worked fine.

I have tried this on a system with an ATI graphics card, and can confirm your bug. It is probably due to the lack of proprietary driver for X 1.6. Hopefully this gets fixed soon!

Either that, or the open-source drivers catch up. Not that I expect that to happen any time soon...

Tried it out on an Eee 1000 with Intel graphics, too. Still can't get it to show much besides a black bar.

 Can't see anything

I can start this, but all I see is a black strip (or whatever I set the background to).

I'm using the screenlets 0.1.2-3 in Debian Squeeze, with Compiz/CompizFusion and nVidia drivers.

Running it from a terminal, I get:

The screenlet isn't reporting any errors in your trace but obviously isn't working as it should.

Do you already have another system tray running (e.g. in a gnome panel)? If so, remove it before running the screenlet, as gnome only allows one at a time.

(On Ubuntu 8.10 the screenlet would grab the icons regardless, in Ubuntu 9.04 Beta the screenlet sometimes grabs the icons, sometimes shows up blank)

If that doesn't work, try launching the network monitor from the right-click menu and see if you get errors, or nothing happens.

It worked after logging out and back in again.

But now I can't get it to remember its position. The entire screenlets suite is not being particularly stable on my setup, though, so I think I'll have to drop it until I can figure out what the problem is.

 Works on Lenny

I tried it on Debian GNU/Linux Lenny (5.0). It works.
I just needed to install python-xlib package.

Creating icon
The program 'SystemTrayScreenlet.py' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.
(Details: serial 580 error_code 8 request_code 72 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
