Description:

This is a pseudo-dynamic system tray.

I had the problem that a system tray doesn't resize for itself, but with this theme you can resize it at the size you want sice it has a simple menu (it pops up with the third button).

You will probably have to reload the theme if you changed the size to fit an unfitted icon.

It will remember the size once you've closed the theme.

I know that autoresize will be a better solution but I don't know how to do it (if possible).

========================================

If you have any problems/suggestions, post a message here or email me.

I do know that it is not a problem of your theme, but i can't change the transparency level of the background so all the apps are transparent by default.

The option of "Theme Setup" is disable on the theme's menu (same behavior with all other apps).

How can i fix this?

Thanx

this system tray keeps crashing

I have implemented this system tray as a part of a larger topbar.. and it has become my main menu/taskbar etc etc

Everytime I log in it starts up automaticaly, but since I added the sysbar it crashes.. starting it again manualy it works wonderful

I have disabled all other system trays
using superkaramba 0.35
on suse 9.2 (2.6.8 kernel)

anyone any ideas??

other then that... toprate!!!

I am going to assume that because gaim is gtk2, this is why it doesn't appear in the systray theme. Am I correct?

i have noticed that if i load this systray theme, and then reboot, superkaramba crashes when restoring session. all other themes is loading ok...

it is pretty annoying to load the theme everytime i reboot!

What I have noticed is that if you do move it and then lock its position when it is restarted it will return to the top left but if left unlocked it'll stay put when restarted. Is that just affecting me or does it happen to every one.

I've also noticed that when it is locked you can't adjust its size. The menu won't appear, but that might be part of karamba.

I think that size automatic adjustment would have to be called from superkaramba as you would have to be notified of another app docking there, maybe if you ask the maintainer of that project he could help. Untill then could you make the icons appear in the centre of the section or maybe equally spaced so that there isn't a gap to the right when the space set doesn't look bigger than need be.

I have noticed that if you lock the position of the theme (right click/Toggle lock position) third button works better!!

(at least here in my linux).

Try and tell me.

Hey, you have a cool idea there. But it is not actualy usable rightnow. Here some feedback of things i noticed:


On startup, kicker stops with this error:
X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) 3
Major opcode: 6
Minor opcode: 0
Resource id: 0x0
Gaim does not seem to like your new SysTray and choose not to go in it.
Maybe it's GTK that does not fit into your systray?

Hi,

The first thing to do is to disable any other systray you have(kicker systray included).

I ve never had any problem like that, may be is the version of karamba, I use the superkaramba 0.33 iun a suse.

What's your version?

Thanks.

Hi, that's one of the new features. If you clik with the middle button in the widget (not the icons) you can add space for new icons or remove that space.

try double click with the middle button if just a click doesn't work.

If you create more space and your icons doesn't replace, reload the theme with the new space. if it still doesn't replace, open the script and change the varible inc to more than 0 (which is the value now) and reload.

Let me know if you still have the problem or you solve it.
