The X-Chat program only gets an indicator in the messenger icon if you install the package i noted called xchat-indicator which doesn't work correctly - you cannot resume the "closed to tray" x-chat, clicking on the tray icon in the messaging menu opens a new instance = very very annoying.
I just did https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...e/+bug/1168876
Until then ideally I need to find a client that works properly in the tray so when I close it, it closes to tray and I can re-open
Thank you for that systray solution. Works well.
