Bonjour à tous,
Is it possible that the search directory is / usr/local/lib/X11 when searching for icons: "Select Icon from Directory"?
Or maybe i am wrong, because i use traymanager in 4.3.1.
Cordialement Wink


If it's in default location, no need to use search directory...just use checkbox and add name. Use search directory to find an icon somewhere else in the filesystem.

Version 4.0: Updated to include new gtkdialog file filters....no more entering names from a list file. Also, selects existing DOTjwmrc backup files or defaults to /mnt/home/DOTjwmrc for first use. Note that new files can be created by writing them in the entry window. Backed up files are remembered and will be the default for subsequent backups, so just pushing the backup button is sufficient.

Popup: text you see when you place cursor over a tray icon
exec: the name of the program app
Select Icon: the name of the icon that shows up in the tray

select: View/Backup Tray to see examples of current listings

My backup tray is empty and there are no icons on the taskbar. I have tried many times to load an icon. The icon will appear on the taskbar, for example-- mini-icons/mini-desktop.xpm, but does nothing when clicked on.

Will the exec run from the terminal? Did you click on "add to tray" ? It should be writing to /root/.jwmrc-tray

PostPosted: Sun 13 Nov 2011, 19:49    Post subject: tray icons  

I do click on add to tray and it does add it but does nothing when clicked on.

# jwm -p
JWM: warning: no icon or label for TrayButton
# /root/ .jwmrc-tray
bash: /root/.jwmrc-tray: Permission denied

Do you know the exact exec command to type in terminal for (usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons/mini-desktop.xpm)?
I do appreciate you trying to help?
Sorry if I am not understanding something that should be simple.

I'm not clear what you're trying to do.

Open a terminal and type "traymanager"

Traymanager should load.
Now type in the popup and exec name, and load an icon using the file selector.
Now click "add to tray"
In the next window, click OK and then Done. Check your terminal window and let me know what it says.


You can type "geany /root/.jwmrc-tray" in the terminal to manually edit or look at what's written.

What distro version are you running? Traymanager uses gtkdialog4 (now standard in Slacko, Lucid, etc).

You're using jwm window manager, right?

tray manager in terminal did nothing although the icon popped up in the tray but still does nothing. I think i am putting the wrong name in exec maybe.

type "traymanager" --one word

If your are getting the correct icon on the tray, you know it is correctly writing to .jwmrc-tray. Check the correct program name by typing "which NAME" into a terminal, with NAME being the program name. You should get the path. Also, clicking on the View Tray button will show you the <TrayButton> entry with the icon that showed up.

<TrayButton popup="showdesktop" icon="/usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons/mini-desktop.xpm">exec:</TrayButton>

This shows up in view tray.

should be exec:NAME What's the name? There should already be an icon for Show Desktop in the .jwmrc-tray. "showdesktop" doesn't work directly from the terminal, so won't work as a local traybutton.

Code:

<TrayButton popup="Show Desktop"icon="minidesktop.xpm">showdesktop</TrayButton>

Actually, it does work...I just tried it. You'll have to edit it manually, however, by removing "exec:" and replacing with "showdesktop". It works from the tray with the icon and popup of your choosing. Don't forget to restart JWM after editing.
