xfce4-clipman-plugin has no icon in the system tray
Last modified: 2016-12-17 19:06:13 EST
Description of problem: xfce4-clipman-plugin has no icon in the system tray
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.2.6-7
How reproducible: always
I would have added a screenshot of nothing but I won't.
According to strace, the only icon xfce4-panel tries to load is:
[pid 6358] open("/home/user/.cache/xfce4/clipman/image0.png", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
Which is obviously wrong.
Of course whenever you copy clipman's icon to this location it shows its icon but that's absolutely wrong as its icon should be fetched from /usr/share/icons
I will take a look. Thanks for the report.
As far as I can tell, there is no clipman icon for fresh installations of Fedora 23 and Fedora 24. Also a system installed as Fedora 23 shows no icon if updated to Fedora 24.
However older installation updated to Fedora 23 or 24 have an icon for clipman.

I could reproduce this, by switching the icon theme from "Dunst" (clipman has an icon) to "Adwaita" (clipman has no icon). All the others icon themes (Crux, Fedora, GNOME, HighContrast) seem to provide a clipman icon as well.

The look has taken half a year already.
How many more looks do you need to take to resolve this annoying bug?
Update: on a freshly installed Fedora 24, there is no clipman icon, whatever icon theme I choose.
Artem: Please be kind. Mukundan is usually very supportive. But there is lots to do for XFCE on Fedora and not to much volunteers to help. I think he already spends a lots of his spare time for Fedora, while usually getting no more than a "thank you".
If you feel that thinks aren't fixed fast enough, you might ask him how you can support the XFCE spin.

Point taken. I apologize for the tone of my message.
Apologies for the delay Artem and Woi.
I can reproduce this for sure - Adwaita - nothing; menda/faenza icon theme - nice icons present.
But, there seem to be differences -
I am on Fedora 24 as well and I do see icons with menda/faenza icon themes.
Would there be any interest in testing with the above mentioned icon themes? These are not in Fedora repos but would give us an idea on whether it's really the icon theme or clipman.
Thanks for having a look into this.
I can test this, if it helps. Where did you installed this icons themes from? I'd usually prefer to use a (3rd party) repository or at least a RPM package.
You can test one or both these themes -
Menda icon theme (not in repos, I built it)
Faenza icon theme
Thanks for testing. :)
just tested the Menda icon theme: with Menda clipman shows an icon (But it's hard to see if there is some degree of transparency enabled for the panel)
This installation is one of the older ones, which has been updated multiple times.

OK, this suggests that the issue is possibly an icon theme problem more than anything else.
One more test please - faenza icon theme has more than one theme - can you try the non-dark theme and see if you can see the icon.
If everything looks ok on other icon themes, perhaps we should think about shipping a symbolic icon or such, I guess.
There is a scratch build for f24
and a real build for F25
that will conceivably fix this issue.
Can you please test?
xfce4-clipman-plugin-1.4.1-1.fc25 has been submitted as an update to Fedora 25. https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2016-0ba46b38c1
Thanks for the test build. After installing it on Fedora 24 , I have an icon again. However it's not the old icon, but a black white one, which doesn't fit very good to the other icons.

That should probably be the fallback symbolic icon?

Tray icon of clipman 1.4.1
Since I'm not sure how the fallback icon looks, I added a screenshot. So please judge your self.
Also the update is missing for Fedora 24:
$sudo dnf list --enablerepo=updates-testing --showduplicates xfce4-clipman-plugin
