To start zim in the system tray (icon visible, but no window popping up) run
zim --plugin trayicon.
To make this command run automatically every time you start your computer, add it to the "autostart applications".
Autostart on Ubuntu / Fedora / Gnome 3
The should work with all Linux dsitributions that use gnome3 on the desktop. I use it with Ubuntu running Gnome rather than Unity, and you should also be to use this command in the latest Fedora.
First, you need to open a terminal. At the command prompt, type:
- A window should pop up listing all your autostart applications. Click on Add, to create a new startup. Another window should appear asking for information.
- For Name, enter: ZIM Desktop Wiki
- For Command, enter: /usr/bin/zim --plugin trayicon
- For Comment, enter: ZIM - A desktop wiki application
Alternatively if you want to autostart zim showing the main window for a specific notebook you can set the command to
zim --gui NOTEBOOK where "NOTEBOOK" is one of your zim notebooks. If you don't specify a notebook you get the default notebook or the notebook selection dialog.
