Pidgin tray icon behaves oddly. First it appears cropped, and when that happens, it dissappears at the next new message arrival. See the screenshots. I'm using Cinnamon 1.2 at Mint 12.

I've seen this with Pidgin, and rarely, with other icons as well. It usually fixes itself in the normal course of things though.

I have Pidgin on constantly, and I have never experienced this issue. I am using the fedora version, not sure if that would have anything to do with it.

I can confirm this behaviour. The icon is not visible, but it still reacts to mouse clicks. Running 1.2.0-1ubuntu1~oneiric here.

The problem arises again. I can't see skype, pidgin, gyachi (any software) tray icon.
To get the icon on the tray, I have to go to the software, disable the icon, and re-enable it again.
Otherwise, I have to use the extension: restart Cinnamon
I am using Cinnamon 1.4 (latest nightly build for Ubuntu).

I know this one is closed and it points to #481 but nothing is being done there either. I thought this would be sort of high priority to fix.

It still exist in Cinnamon 2.2.16 - even more annoying now, because blank space is not clickable, so it's not just missing image icon.

Same problem in 2.2.14 on F20. Confirming that blank space is unclickable. Following the tip of enabling Cinnamon to scal panel text and icons fixed the issue. The solution was described in this iissue: #481

Unfortunately, the workaround described by @slmingol has to be applied every time I start pidgin. Each time, the icon first comes up in the "bad" state where it just takes space in the system tray, but doesn't react to any input. Each time I have to toggle "Custom panel size" to make it appear.

This is with Cinnamon 2.6.13 on Debian testing.

I was able to fix this by editing /usr/share/pixmaps/pidgin/tray/hicolor/index.theme and replacing it with:

[Icon Theme]
Name=Pidgin
Comment=Icon theme for Pidgin tray icons
Directories=scalable/actions,scalable/status

[scalable/actions]
MinSize=1
Size=128
MaxSize=256
Context=Actions
Type=Scalable
