Description Jeremy Katz 2006-11-06 12:59:37 EST
If you have a GtkStatusIcon and set_visible to false and then later set it to
true, it never shows up in the KDE tray.  Simple test case:


import gtk, gobject

def show_it(t, *args):
    print "showing it"
    return False

t = gtk.status_icon_new_from_file("/usr/share/pirut/pixmaps/puplet-updated.png")
gobject.timeout_add(5000, show_it, t)

Can somebody verify that this is fixed with GTK+ trunk ? If it is,
I would be willing to backport the relevant changes to the stable branch.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-09-12 14:40:09 EDT
Definitely fixed with gtk+ 2.11.6

Any chance to see this fixed in F-7's gtk2 too?  We're (still) getting lots of
bugs/complaints there.

Once I have a working backported fix, sure. So far, no luck

I posted bug 380071 ... the big thing I'm wondering about is, why did
bluetooth-applet etc. suddenly begin getting started as part of log-in after the
KDE upgrade? I never saw this problem before the recent update ...

Because KDE was patched to honor the XDG autostart directory.
