Description Marcin Zajaczkowski 2006-12-17 12:15:08 EST
Description of problem:

Applications started on the second screen (dual-head view) don't add icons to
notification area. Tested with kydpdict (using QT)
http://timeoff.wsisiz.edu.pl/rpms.html#kydpdict) and Mozilla New Mail Icon
(http://moztraybiff.mozdev.org/), but I believe it's common problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any application which uses tray (notification area) on the second screen

Actual results:
Icon isn't shown in a notification area

Expected results:
Icon in a notification area (like when application ran on the primary screen.

Additional info:
When you work on loptop, bigger external monitor is the secondary screen and you
start then most applications lack of icons can be unpleasant.
Comment 1 Marcin Zajaczkowski 2006-12-29 16:55:57 EST
Happens also with Gaim (GTK+) and on Debian, so this is probably a general
Gnome/Notification area bug.

Reported in Gnome Bugzilla 
Comment 2 Marcin Zajaczkowski 2007-01-06 04:40:42 EST
External Bugzilla References added (among other things to check if it works - I
have never used it before).
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-03-18 14:41:55 EDT

We no longer support Fedora Core 6 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state.  I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
 If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?

(this is a mass message)
Comment 4 Marcin Zajaczkowski 2008-03-18 17:50:58 EDT
This bug depends on http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=346162 . It is
still unresolved in current Gnome release, so it should (and probably would)
occur in Fedora 8 (but I don't have dual view system right now to confirm it for

I don't know what is the policy in Fedora if problem is unresolved upstream.
