Projects / wmsystray


wmsystray provides a system tray compatible with's System Tray Protocol specification. Basically, it serves as a system tray that allows other programs to show icons in it. For example, if you enable GAIM's System Tray Icon plugin, wmsystray will display GAIM's systray icon. Its intended use is as a Window Maker dock app, though it will run in other window managers as well.

    Release Notes: All GTK2/eggtrayicon apps should now dock correctly. Running wmsystray --nowm will now provide the correct behaviour under window managers other than Window Maker. .deb generation is now slightly better, but should be even more policy-strict in future releases. Binary and source RPMs are now provided.
