[jitsi-users] System tray icon broken in gnome3


#1

Dear Jitsi developers,

Thanks a lot for creating such great software!

I have recently switched to OpenSUSE 13.1 with Gnome 3.10 and I am
having problems using the Jitsi system tray icon (both with stable and
nightly builds).

At Jitsi startup, the icon appears, but it is not responding to clicks
(no menu is shown and double-clicking doesn't hide Jitsi).

I can close the Jitsi window and Jitsi keeps running, but I cannot
reopen the window by clicking the icon. I can only kill Jitsi and edit
sip-communicator.properties to set impl.systray.showApplication to true
to get Jitsi back on restart.

Please let me know if I can provide any further info.

Best wishes,
Jeroen

Yes, that's true unfortunately and we are aware of the issue:

https://trac.jitsi.org/ticket/1224

If anyone wants to poke at a systray replacement, that would be most welcome!

The behavior I'm seeing is worse than what is described in the bug
report, rendering the system tray icon totally unusable. It is also
described here:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1014448

Unfortunately I have the time nor the skills to do this. Would it be
possible to add a mechanism to disable the system tray icon, like a
command line switch?

For a couple of weeks I have been seeing this error on automatic system
updates to an Ubuntu computer via update manager.

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/jitsi_2.4.4997-1_i386.deb: subprocess
dpkg-deb --fsys-tarfile returned error exit status 2

Update manager says it is updating;
Jitsi Voip and Instant Messageing client size 17.0 MB
Changes for the versions:
2.2.4603.9615-1
2.4.4997-1
This change is not coming from a source that supports changelogs.

I thought it would go away with future updates but it still sticks
around. How should I handle this?

Unfortunately, not at the moment.
