Footnotes About wmsystray =============== wmsystray is meant to be used as a Window Maker dock applet. wmsystray provides a notification area, or "system tray", in a manner compliant with freedesktop.org's System Tray Protocol Specification. This allows wmsystray to serve as a system tray area for recent GNOME and KDE applications, and should work for applications from GNOME 2.x and later or KDE 3.x and later. wmsystray is written and maintained by Matthew Reppert <firstname.lastname@example.org> wmsystray's homepage is at <http://kai.vm.bytemark.co.uk/~arashi/wmsystray/>. Installing wmsystray ================== To build wmsystray from source, just type "make" in the top source directory (the same directory this file is in). You may need to change the defines in Rules.make to match your system; for example, X11 might not be in /usr/X11R6 (it is on most GNU/Linux systems). You will need the XFree86-devel package (or xlibs-devel, or whatever package provides files like /usr/X11R6/include/Xlib.h) to compile on package-managed systems like Debian and Mandrake. Binary packages (namely, rpms and debs) of wmsystray are provided as a convenience on the download page. System requirements =================== wmsystray needs X11 (obviously). Future versions of wmsystray may optionally use the SHAPE extension if it's present. Currently, wmsystray is targeted to work best under Window Maker as a dock app, though it will actually run fine regardless of what window manager you use. It just may look a little out of place. Liscense/Copyright Information ============================== wmsystray is licensed under the GNU General Public License, version 2. No other version of the GPL is valid. Development Information ======================= wmsystray is developed using GNU Arch. For more information, including the location of wmsystray's central arch repository, please see the file HACKING. Footnotes =========  http://freedesktop.org/Standards/systemtray-spec However, to support most interesting functionality, system trays also need to implement the "server" side of XEMBED, and really should know about the Extended Window Manager Hints specification, or EMWH, also knows as NetWM.
