Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 465300
transparent tray icons written using perl-Gtk2-TrayIcon have a white background
Last modified: 2009-07-14 10:04:27 EDT
Description of problem:
tray icons with an alpha channel used by programs written using perl-Gtk2-TrayIcon are not transparent, but have a white background
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. get http://daduke.org/dl/wefunktray for example
2. run it
white background behing icon
ubuntu fixed it: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libgtk2-trayicon-perl/+bug/156886
I can confirm that icons are transparent with this fix.
Looking at the ubuntu bug, it appears they "fixed" it by updating to 0.06 of Gtk2::TrayIcon... There also doesn't seem to be an upstream bug filed against Gtk2::TrayIcon at rt.cpan.org; and I can't reproduce this under F-9 with the wefunctray source above. :\
Are you sure you're using Gtk2::TrayIcon from the rpm? There isn't another older copy installed locally that wefunktray is picking up first? (easy to check -- run 'locate Gtk2/TrayIcon.pm' and see if multiples pop up.)
you can't reproduce it - does this mean the icon is transparent for you? Even if you're using it on a transparent trayer? Like this:
trayer --SetDockType true --widthtype request --align right --transparent true --alpha 255
For me, the result is: http://www.phys.ethz.ch/~daduke/wf.png
I definitely only have /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/Gtk2/TrayIcon.pm on my machine.
Could it be that the actual problem is not in the PERL wrapper in TrayIcon.pm, but in some gnome/eggtray/whatever package?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
