I opened settings right clicking on thunderbird(icedove) icon and went to section chat. Then enabled chat icon (icon appeared) and then disabled it (cuz I have no chat accounts set) but the icon still remains.

I tried reseting openbox env and tint2 panel. No succes.

Chat icon have no options right|left|middle click tried.

Thank you for reporting. I'll be fixing that soon.

Fixed in dab586c. Could you give it a try ?


Hash: SHA1

I cloned git source and checked diff the change is commited. But I can't
build FireTray. Strange error. Maybe some dependencies problem. I
googled and duckduckgoed that no succes.

The only output is:

:~/FireTray/src$ DEBUG=on ; colormake build
checking version consistency
checking loglevel
make: *** [check_loglevel] Błąd 1

Błąd is simply Error in polish. I made good polish translation for
FireTray:D (see attachment) And I am ready to give some helpful hand
in testing, advices, second eyes on code etc.. But first! How to build
that?! I also admit I am not a programmer. I know some linux:D

If you got your own GPG key I prefer encrypted contact. Mine is also in
attachment. So you can send me encrypted mails.

lol did I missed something? :D
I also tried with debug option and without, with make and colormake. Same result.

Hi, thank you for your help offer!
You should be able to build now (git pull first).


I am not familiar with git so something went wrong again. And I simply deleted git repository and cloned again:D Now it compiles successfully but I had to hack install.rdf file to make it work with icedove 17.0.10. Then it installs correctly but there is a new bug.
2014-04-14--1397462366_385x61_scrot Enabled
2014-04-14--1397462396_394x68_scrot Disabled again
2014-04-14--1397462410_445x63_scrot Enabled again
2014-04-14--1397462426_762x61_scrot Repeated a few times

So as you can see my panel is keep going smaller and smaller. When I restart tint2 everything is fine again or when I simply close Thunderbird (Icedove).

Forgot to mention that the minimum version for Thunderbird is now 27, due to the Windows port. So you should create a extensions.checkCompatibility.nightly preference set to false to be able to install FireTray seamlessly.
About the tray icon not being removed from the tray, I'll test with tint2 soon.

Hi, I can't reproduce the remove-icon-leaves-empty-space problem. Tested on Arch with gtk-2.24.23 openbox-3.5.2 tint2-0.11. What is your setup ?


Crunchbang #! 32 bit (Debian wheezy based) with backports wheezy-updates and wheezy-proposed-updates repository:
openbox 3.5.2-6bpo70+1
tint2 0.11
libgtk2.0-0 2.24.10-2

foudfou commented Apr 15, 2014

grr... mind posting your tint2rc ? Do you see any errors with logging enabled, in the console or the JS-console ?


tint2rc: I think nothing wrong here.

tint2 consolelog: (nothing appears here also when I reproduce bug)

real transparency on... depth: 32
xRandr: Found crtc's: 4
xRandr: Linking output DFP1 with crtc 0
NO XSETTINGS manager, tint2 use config 'launcher_icon_theme'.

And I don't know what is JS-console:P Teach me and I will give you log.

foudfou commented Apr 15, 2014

No luck with your tint2rc: everything working fine.
Ok so for logging, you need to enable debug output, as described at the end here.
You can also launch the JS-Console with Ctrl-Shift-J.

Though I'm unable to reproduce with TB 24.4.0, not sure why the error is not thrown on my side, could you try eeec77a ?


I commited eeec77a change and the last error dont show up anymore but I am sure that new one is the thing:

"Czas: 15.04.2014 22:37:22
Ostrzeżenie: Oczekiwano koloru, ale odnaleziono „none”. Błąd podczas przetwarzania wartości dla „stop-color”. Deklaracja opuszczona.

Line: 0"

I've cleared the console and reproduced error and this is what show up. tries a few times and cosole shows the same warning. This might be the thing. Its cool that you commit changes so fast:D

foudfou commented Apr 16, 2014

mmh. So you're saying that the error (remove-icon-leaves-empty-space) remains ?
If so, can you explain the exact actions to reproduce the problem (like: are you closing the pref window each time ?) ? Can you possibly provide a VM illustrating the error ?
Oh and you didn't mention your TB version ?
I think the warning is just ...a warning (SVG), besides it's related to an image displayed in the preference window, not in the systray.


I am using Icedove from debian backported repos version 17.0.10-1~deb7u1.
actions i do:

  1. right click on tray icon -> preferences
  2. switch to CHAT tab
  3. click and click on checkbox (enable->disable->enable->disable)
  4. systray is groooowing. all
    5* closing preferences window makes no difference

I will make a short video using recordmydesktop later and send you a link how the thing looks like.
also will try to make identical VM (VirtualMachien? yes?) to my system and try to reproduce error on it. Give me some time
