Introduction

Stalonetray is a stand-alone freedesktop.org and KDE system tray (notification area) for X Window System/X11 (e.g. X.Org or XFree 86). It has full XEMBED support and minimal dependencies: an X11 lib only. Stalonetray works with virtually any EWMH-compliant window manager.

Window managers that are reported to work well with stalonetray:

FVWM OpenBox Enlightenment ion3 Compiz Xmonad

Installation

Stalonetray is available from the standard repositories:

# pacman -S stalonetray

Once installed, you must place the stalonetrayrc file in your home directory, you can do this by:

# cp /etc/stalonetrayrc ~/.stalonetrayrc

Note: do this as a regular user, not as root.

Using Stalonetray with Openbox

To run stalonetray in Openbox, you need to run:

# stalonetray -w

Openbox now treats the tray as the dock, and you can adjust its position by using the Openbox Configuration Tool.
