Flatpak and Tray Icons


Hi Folks,

does anyone know if # supports system tray icons?

I am currently testing the flatpak # application but it doesn't shows any tray icon not even in the preferences that is available as option, but reading on internet it may be activated with these options: --use-tray-icon --start-in-tray

However when I run:

flatpak run org.signal.Signal --use-tray-icon --start-in-tray

The icon in the tray isn't displayed.

My system is # Testing with # as # environment, what do you think?

My best,

D.

By the way I installed Zoom through Flatpak and it is has the tray icon... But I didn't know that Gnome 3 doesn't support tray icon hence I had to install the nineteenth extensions... 🤦‍♂️

Virtual Distro Hopping


 
Give a try to Sabayon, Calculate or Gentoo before settling with Debian. You may get surprised.
 
I am not even sure if Sabayon is still active as project, however I don't see the point to use Gentoo on a Virtual Machine with limited resources...
 
Would have liked to read about your experiences with Obarun. It is arch based and I used it only on bare metal. Install is pretty simple.

 

How do I get which application is open for screens rather than for desktop?


Hi folks,

I am trying to figure out how to get which applications are open on a specific screen on a multi-monitor configuration on #Linux.

For example utility like #wmctrl ignores the condition of the two monitors and considers the desktop area just as larger (1920*2)*1080px.

Thanks!

Just a wild guess, would pstree show you an entry of screen and the applications listed beneath it?
 
I have to test it out... but thanks anyway...
