Description Fulko Hew 2004-04-05 10:24:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040312

Description of problem:
When running under KDE the task bar has a reserved space for the
eggcups print-queue panel icon, but the icon is not visible.

The software is there, because it responds when doing a mouse over.

The application reports itself as eggcups 0.0.5.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in using KDE
2. Note the reserved space on the task bar for the icon and the icon
is not visible.
3. Move the mouse over that 'empty' region, and view the tooltip.

This is a KDE taskbar problem I think.  There's no need for it to
reserve space for the icon when it isn't visible.
Comment 2 Fulko Hew 2004-04-07 13:39:42 EDT
Conversely, I think since the application is there, it should display
 the icon.  Then the question becomes... should the application be there.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2004-04-07 15:06:58 EDT
If there icon was there all the time it would sort of miss the point..
Comment 4 Ngo Than 2004-04-07 16:22:55 EDT
it looks like the KDE taskbar does not support this feature which the
gnome applet uses here (don't reserve space for icon when it isn't
visible). Normally the applet should show the icon all the time.

Well what does pam-panel-applet do?  This is the same sort of thing.
Comment 6 Ngo Than 2004-04-07 17:52:50 EDT
yes, i know that the pam-panel-applet does the same
