    fluxbox tray strange behaviour


    my fluxbox system tray behaves strange:

    these white spaces occurs. Longer the session lasts, bigger the spaces are. This is realy annoying. What program can be responsible for that?

    i use ubuntu 11.04

    I have this problem too. I haven't found a solution for it yet.

    It's really annoying.

    Sounds a little odd, are you running 1.3.2?

    andrew@skamandros~$ fluxbox -version
    Fluxbox 1.3.2 : (c) 2001-2011 Fluxbox Team
    Interesting as well to see what you are both starting in $HOME/.fluxbox/startup ?

    Re: fluxbox tray strange behaviour


    I have the exact same problem. It seems that the tray becomes bigger every time it resumes from suspend.

    Here is what I have in my startup file:

    nm-applet &
    touchpad-indicator &
    xfce4-power-manager &
    fbsetbg -l

    Any ideas ?

    Might be worth investigating an upgrade to latest version though to see if the problem persists. Changelog shows a lot of work:

    Changes for 1.3.2
        * Bugfix: possible crash at SIGINT / exit (Mathias)
        * Removed (obsolete) Gnome window manager hints (Mathias)
          Gnome.{cc,hh} src/
        * Cleaned master translation file from obsolete stuff (Thanks skizzhg)
          Marked obsolete entries as _OBSOLTE to help other translators to identify
          them. Also, removed entries which are meant for error reporting anyway.
        * Updated italian translation (Thanks skizzhg)
        * Tons of changes all over the place (Pavel)
          RefCount, FbTk::Timer, const Signals, Documentation fixes etc
        * Compilefix: build without 'iconv' support (Thanks to Peter Korsgaard)
        * Bugfix: sync the copied config files to the disk before continuing to
          launch. This avoids possible race conditions, eg. under MacOSX (Mathias)

        * Relicense 'ostrich' theme (to please Debian / Ubuntu) (Sven)
        * Bugfix: Do not change workspaces when using NextWindow/PrevWindow in toolbar (Mathias)

        * Mapping keysyms to keycodes after 'MappingNotify', closes #3386257 (Mathias)

        * Regrab ButtonMotionMask, needed for 'Move' events in .fluxbox/keys (Mathias)

        * Fixed using _NET_WM_ICON wrongly, (re)closes #1852693 (Mathias)

        * Updated 'bloe' and 'arch' styles to work without XPM support (Sven)
        * Fixed Textdialog and TooltipWindow style rendering bugs, added
          parentrelative labels (Thanks Nacitar Sevaht)

        * Use the new signal system exclusively (Pavel)
          In 2010 Henrik introduced a new signal/slot system as a replacement
          to the observer/subject code. That transition was never completed.
          Pavel cleaned up the missing parts, fixed some crashes related to
          restart() / shutdown of fluxbox.
        * Fix build system (Pavel)
        * Added check for CARDINAL via client patterns (Thanks to Nacitar Sevaht)
 FbTk/FbWindow.{cc,hh} Focusable.hh
 WinClient.hh Window.{cc,hh}
        * Fixed build system issues, tuned .gitignore (Thanks Pavel)
        * Bugfix: do not warp workspaces with only one workspace (Mathias)
        * Fixed some compiler warnings (Thanks Pavel)
          tests/ tests/
        * Bugfix: crash on Sparc64, closes #3285968 (Thanks David Coppa)
        * Fixed typo on style 'MerleyKay', closes #3286430 (Thanks David Coppa)

        * Fixed VPATH builds (Thanks to Pavel)
 data/ src/ src/tests/
        * Bugfix: correct calculation of height if container is rotated
          vertically, closes #3195728 (Thanks to Gediminas Liktaras)

        * Fixed some typos in the manpages (Thanks to Pavel Labath)
        * fluxbox-generate_menu cleanups (Thanks slakmagic at gmail com)
        * Compile fix: gcc-4.6.x needs <cstdlib> for 'size_t' (Thanks Danial Diaz)
          FbTk/LayerItem.hh FbTk/MacroCommand.h FbTk/MultLayers.hh
        * Updated turkish translations (Thanks Mesutcan Kurt)
        * Compile fixes for Sunstudio12 (sunCC 5.1), cosmetics (Mathias)
        * Fix 'sstream' configure test (Mathias)

          Screen.hh Window.hh ScreenPlacement.{cc,hh}
          src/tests/* doc/asciidoc/fluxbox.txt doc/asciidoc/startfluxbox.txt
        * removed (outdated) russian documentation (Thanks Slava Semushin)
    I do not use PPAs but perhaps this one might be worth looking at:

    It is owned by Paul Tagliamonte who packages Fluxbox for Debian and I know from irc as a great guy .

    Re: fluxbox tray strange behaviour

    Hi guys,

    have you found a solution for this so far? I'm annoyed with this also. I use suspend a LOT (current uptime >6d) on my Lenovo X220 (Fedora 16 + fluxbox 1.3.2) and it results in the fluxbox systray despite having only 6 icons covering about 60% of the toolbar.. It's making the window list quite small and unreadable..

    Re: fluxbox tray strange behaviour

    It seems somebody opened a bug report in launchpad.
    I can confirm this happens also on debian unstable atm.
    The solution is to restart fluxbox from its menu, the windows/apps will retain the current workspace.
