[jitsi-users] Cannot open main window when minimized to system tray on Plasma 5 (KDE)


#1

Hi all,

I installed Jitsi 2.8.5426-1 on my Kubuntu 15.10 Wily machine. I have set up a
Jabber account, and I'm on-line with it.

However, when I minimize the main window to the system tray, then I cannot
bring it back again. Neither double-clicking on the Jitsy system tray icon
works, nor does right-clicking bring up a contect menu or anything else.

So once Jitsi is minimized to the system tray, there is no way to bring it
back again.

Is this related to Plasma 5 kicked out xembed and brought it back again? See

Thanks for any hints,

Florian

Hi again,

for the record, there is a bug report in the Debian bug tracker, which sounds
very similar to me

Yes. We use the standard Java tray icon, and Java was never updated to use any of the other fancy, new, desktop-environment specific ways.

There's also a bug mentioned here:

Thanks for any hints,
