View Full Version : [SOLVED] 'notification area' present, pidgin icon missing

December 6th, 2009, 03:11 PM
So, somehow the pidgin icon no longer appears in the notification area.
Yes, the notification area itself is still present in the upper panel, but after several restarts, launching pidgin no longer makes an icon appear there.
When a message is recieved, an icon appears, but as soon as it is read the icon dissappears; it used to just turn back in to the Pidgin.

I'd like it back, because now I have to re-launch pidgin if I want my buddy list back after closing it, because closing the buddy lilt does not quit the program, even now when the icon's gone.


Oh, forgot; running pidgin 2.6.2 on Kamic

So, apparently I'm pretty stupid, it's a preference in pidgin>tools>preferences, interface tab, "show system tray icon"; choose always. Problem solved.
