Jim: please copy exactly what the error message says into this bug report.

Comment 4 Jim Gribbin 2010-03-26 21:10:46 UTC
In a message box that pops up, I have:

No system tray detected on this system.
Unable to start, exiting.

(copied and pasted)

I did notice in checking this that if I go into Gnome Start-up Applications tool, activate this for automatically starting, then log out and back in, I do not get the error.

If I shut the box completely down and re-start it with this activated as a start-up application, I get the message.

I did not notice this part of what's going on previously. Not certain it makes any difference anyway. Just something I noticed.

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2010-03-29 15:50:55 UTC
This is coming from ui4/systemtray.py.  It's talking about the 'notification area' on the panel.

It's already waited for 10s to see if a system tray becomes available, and it still hasn't.  My guess is it just needs to wait longer until the notification area applet starts up.

Jim, can you try this build of hplip ?

Download the appropriate rpms into empty directory and install them as root:
yum localinstall --nogpgcheck *.rpm

Comment 9 Jim Gribbin 2010-05-11 22:06:50 UTC
It works!! :)

Up and going from a restart of the box. No error messages, no flashing abrt. Everything appears normal.

Nuts. It's still doing it. Occasionally anyway.

I powered (shut down) my laptop down when I went home yesterday. This morning when I booted up, I had the message back, but no crash notification from abrt.

I powered the computer completely back down and and brought it up a second time. hplip started without issue.

Comment 11 Tim Waugh 2010-05-13 11:43:47 UTC
Jim, how long does it take your desktop to start up?  Can you time it?

Comment 13 Jim Gribbin 2010-05-13 21:59:46 UTC
Hope you just meant w/ a stopwatch. I don't know how to write a script for that.

It ooks like 1 min 23 sec from the moment I click the login button after keying 
in my password to where the hplip systray icon shows in the system tray.

When I first booted the box this AM after it was powered off all night, I received the error. When I powered down and brought it back up just now to time it, it worked fine.

I guess the slight difference it makes in having everything warmed up is affecting the timing just enough to make it work?
