    Default KDE4 : Systray icons displayed not correcty

    After I got KDE 4.1 working under opensuse 11 64bit ( ) I have another question. My systray icons are sometimes messed up, no matter which theme I'm using. They look like this:


    (the kmix Icon and the Updater Icon)

    I'm using an Nvidia GeForce 8800GT and the latest modules from nvidia ( 177.13 ). Already got this bug on KDE 4.0 and older Nvidia modules.

    Any idea howto get them shown correctly on evry bootup?

    Thanks for any help!

    Hi cargi,

    I will not very helpful because I have the same issue and it seems that every kde 4 user have this problem. Moreover, systray icons lacks transparency and it is even shown on plasma themes on kde-look.org...

    But if someone have a work-around or info about that it could be interesting.

    Kang.

    I submitted a bug report relating to a similar systray issue several months ago and I haven't heard that it has been fixed. So I assume this is an area on which they are still working.

    I found out to correct it a bit is to switch to the terminal via STRG+ALT+F1 and switch back ALT+F7 . Using compiz fusion the icons looks a bit worse than not using the 3d desktop.

    From what I've read in dot.kde.org, it seems the fix is not coming anytime soon

    Correction of the rendering problems in the tray icons...likely to not be in 4.2. to do this right requires either fixing GTK+ (whose developers have said they won't fix the crash in their toolkit when a widget is XEmbed'd into an app with a different colourmap; Qt works properly, so it is possible.. *shrug*) or changing the systray spec completely.

    thankfully there are other reasons to change the systray spec completely (as in "the current one is a design that may have made sense 10 years ago but ceased making any sense a few years back"), and that's something i've got on my hit list.

    however, i'm only thinking about getting a spec together by the time 4.2 is out, i'm not delusional in thinking i can also get an implementation of it and in wide-spread use before 4.3.
