Thread: System Tray Icons are invisible or wrong.

  1. #1

    Default System Tray Icons are invisible or wrong.

    Has anyone else seen or heard of this odd issue? (Using opensuse 11.1, KDE4.3.0)

    I have a system tray "plasmoid/widget" (whatever it is called) on the panel at the bottom of the screen, and it has been exhibiting some strange behavior.

    KMix, Klipper, and opensuse-updater icons all appear as normal. BUT - if more icons are added to the system tray, they either are blank squares, or a copy of the icon to the left.

    The offending icons so far are KNetworkManager, Pidgin, VMware and I also tried wicd (to see if it was just knetworkmanager). When I hover the mouse over the blank (or copied icon) and right click, the appropriate menu items appear. It just seems so odd that they show up as blank squares, or copies.

    It is almost as if the system tray is one count off for the icons.

    That was an interesting way to request which repositories I have, but I do appreciate you taking the time to help.
    Anyway - the output wraps, making it ugly to view - but here it is:

    I know I don't need all of these - but using the "One-Click" install for various programs has collected quite a few repo's...

    Again - thanks for any suggestions you have.

    KDE 4.2.4r2 and I've seen this behavior after recent updates.
    Also Novell Client tray won't run at all. Here's my setup.

    Seriously dude.You have to clean that up. Follow this guide:
    KDE4.3.* Upgrade - HowTo - openSUSE Forums

    It will help you. You have duplicates and conflicting repos. My advice would be delete them all then add back
    oss
    non-oss
    updates
    packman

    and then the 2 kde4.3 factory repos in that guide
    Make sure oss and non-oss are 120 priority, all the rest 99

    Then go to software management, filter by repo, select system and do update all unconditionally.

    It may help to nopt just update KDE 4, but also QT.
    If you still use 4.4, then update to 4.5, solved my issues.

    I see many people strugling with the system tray. A lot of them have Intel GPU's. Installing the latest Xorg from the repos is a solution for most of them, since it contains latest intel video drivers.

    I do agree a repolist like this should give trouble.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I went ahead and deleted ALL repositories, then added ONLY the ones suggested. Currently in the process of Unconditional Update for the KDE repo's.

    I will post more when the update is done.

    PS - I have an Intel Graphics card also - and it works quite well. I didn't think this was a graphics driver issue, because icons are displayed correctly in Gnome, XFCE, and in KDE3.5. I understand that KDE4.3 is a work in progress.

    kde4.3 is a stable release, but the repo's in suse should really be considered development.

    11.1 was released with kde4.1.3 and that is the official support. The repos that provide you and many others with 4.3.1 ATM are Factory. This is what is being used in the development of 11.2 which will be released with kde4.3.
