System tray screenlet

   0.2  

Screenlet

Score 67%
System tray screenlet
zoom


Downloads:  7237
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

A couple of things to check:
-Make sure you have version 0.1.1, there was a bug in 0.1
-Make sure you have python-xlib installed

If neither of these help, please run the screenlet from the command line and post the output.

Hello. I think it's a great idea, but I can't see nothing. This appears when I open the SystemTray screenlet.

And this appears in command-line.

I reproduced your screenshot using version 0.1 of the screenlet in Ubuntu 8.10.

Try downloading the updated package, version 0.1.1, this should fix your problem.

Thanks for your answer. I have Ubuntu 8.10, but I have already installed the 0.1.1 version. Any idea? Thanks again.

 Icons disappear!

I've added and tested a little your screenlet and I found something very odd: after I execute the screenlet and close, all of my tray icons in exception of sound control disappear! All of them appear after I restart X

And BTW, in the next releases considerer adding borders or images for the background of the screenlet, and it would be very good to choose different opacities between background and icons

Works great and looks awesome. This is just what I was looking for! Now I've turned off gnome-panel and gone with Docky and your screenlet instead. :)

nice work!

If the background is more than 50% transparent, the screenlet will not recognise clicks.


Using this in on_draw works fine for me with fully transparent background:
Quote:
def on_draw_shape (self, ctx):
ctx.scale(self.scale, self.scale)
if self.theme:
ctx.set_source_rgba(1, 1, 1, 1)
ctx.rectangle (0,0,self.width,self.height)
ctx.fill()

Thanks michote, that does work well. I'll add it to the next update.

This opens some interesting possibilities for themes, such as the 3-d look used with most docks.

 Vertical and Grid layouts

Any idea when you will get a chance to get vertical (or even grid) layouts working? I have your screenlet sitting inside a sidebar, and it's getting a little squished...
