Description Ville Skyttä 2006-08-08 14:22:36 EDT
ksmarttray lacks a menu entry, one can be "borrowed" from Enrico's old package
at http://ensc.de/fedora/smart-0.41-0.6.src.rpm
Comment 1 Axel Thimm 2006-08-09 05:41:12 EDT
Should a tray object really have a menu entry? I don't have one for my weather
or battery display.
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2006-08-09 10:52:47 EDT
If it's not available through other means (eg. KDE's "Add applet to panel..."
functionality), no doubt about it IMO.
Comment 3 Axel Thimm 2006-08-09 11:09:52 EDT
This seems like the right thing to do. Do you know how?
I'm going to raise that upstream, too.
Comment 4 Ville Skyttä 2006-08-09 11:38:49 EDT
I don't know for sure, but a bit of Googling and looking into the contents of my
hard drive makes me believe that the "add applet" stuff is available only for
DSO applets, not executables.

Comment 5 Ville Skyttä 2006-08-09 11:41:53 EDT
On the other hand, I suppose the "add applet" stuff is available only in KDE,
thus leaving other DE users who would be interested in ksmarttray because a
"native" applet is not available for their DE without a way to launch it from
the GUI.
Comment 6 Axel Thimm 2006-08-20 10:35:03 EDT
OK, I asked upstream, if no better solution is given I'll use Enrico's menuing
trick as suggested.
Comment 7 Axel Thimm 2006-08-20 11:17:10 EDT
I got some feedback (that's how SuSE seems to have solved this problem):

Does it work dropping the desktop file under one of the following dirs:

/etc/xdg/autostart  /usr/share/autostart  /usr/share/gnome/autostart

One can set a default whether ksmartray will run or not through

X-KDE-autostart-condition=ksmarttrayrc:General:Autostart:true

which can be overriden by a ksmarttrayrc managed through the KDE configuration
framework.
Comment 8 Ville Skyttä 2006-08-20 13:17:28 EDT
That sounds like an orthogonal/additional thing to me -- whether to autostart
ksmarttray or not as opposed to whether it can be launched some way in the GUI.
 I've no experience with the former, but dropping a desktop file into the dirs
mentioned in comment 7 did not seem to have any effect, and I'm not sure what
"managed through the KDE configuration framework" means in practice.
Comment 9 Axel Thimm 2006-09-01 18:30:04 EDT
Copied over ensc's solution.
