new SNI protocol is handled. However, in the real worl a lot of applications do not handle the new protocol: Qt4 and Qt5 applications can be fixed by installing the
sni-qt (currently in experimental) and
libdbusmenu-qt5 respectively but other applications (such as GTK ones) must be patched/recompiled with SNI support. Without this, windows disappear into oblivion . You can have a seamless systray-enabled Plasma panel with a single (OK, two) line of shell .
First, resize your panel and remove some space on the right (this is where we're going to add a new panel):
Then install trayer and run:
trayer --align right --widthtype pixel --width 150 --transparent false \ --heighttype pixel --height 30 --alpha 230 --padding 10
Now, you have systrays in your panel:
You might need to adjust the parameters of
trayer and resize the panel in order to have a seamless panel.
You can then add a script to do this (mine is in
#!/bin/sh exec trayer --align right --widthtype pixel --width 150 --transparent false \ --heighttype pixel --height 30 --alpha 230 --padding 10
Now, you can ask Plasma to run this script when starting the session.
The new Plasma 5 is quite nice by the way (but the lack of classic systray is not so nice).
