Java applications are unable to use tray icon when using compiz
Last modified: 2011-01-19 16:09:40 EST
Description of problem:
When running compiz, java applications are unable to use a tray icon and they think that tray icon is not supported. But using metacity, they are able to put their icon in the tray.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a java application with tray icon under metacity in Gnome. You'll see the tray icon.
2.Exit the program and enable desktop effects
3.Run the application again. The tray icon doesn't appear. Java thinks that the tray icon is not supported
Java programs should be able to use a tray icon when compiz is enabled
Apparently this bug is fixed in sun's JDK.
Confirmed. This needs to be ported from OpenJDK7 to OpenJDK6.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '12'.
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 12'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 12 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:
This has been fixed in OpenJDK6. The fix should become available in Fedora 14 with the next release of IcedTea6 - 1.10.
