Stalonetray is a stand-alone freedesktop.org and KDE system tray for the X Window System. It has full XEMBED support, minimal dependencies and works with virtually any EWMH-compliant window manager. Window managers that are reported to work well with stalonetray are: FVWM, Openbox, Enlightenment, Ion3, Compiz and Xmonad.

Installation

Stalonetray is available from the community repository:

# pacman -S stalonetray

Once installed, copy the stalonetrayrc file to your home directory. Note that you should do this as a regular user.

$ cp /etc/stalonetrayrc ~/.stalonetrayrc

Configuration

Openbox

To run stalonetray in Openbox, you need to run:

# stalonetray --dockapp-mode simple

Alternatively, you can specify dockapp-mode in your .stalonetrayrc file. Openbox now treats the tray as the dock, and you can adjust its position by using the Openbox Configuration Tool.

To run Stalonetray on start up, add the following to ~/.config/openbox/autostart:

stalonetray &

If the dockapp-mode is not specified in ~/.stalonetrayrc, add the following instead:

stalonetray --dockapp-mode simple &

Ion3

To run stalonetray in Ion3:

 stalonetray --kludges=force_icons_size,fix_window_pos

To include stalonetray in the statusbar, add the following to your configuration file in ~/.ion3/ :

-- Create a statusbar
mod_statusbar.create{
    screen=0,
    pos='bl',
    fullsize=true,
    systray=true,
    template="[ %date || %load || ... ] %systray%filler%systray_stalone",
}

defwinprop{class="stalonetray",instance="stalonetray",statusbar="systray_stalone"}
defwinprop{instance="stalonetray",statusbar="systray_stalone"}
defwinprop{class="stalonetray",statusbar="systray_stalone"}
