        trayer-srg is a lightweight GTK2-based systray for UNIX desktop

        trayer [OPTION]...

  trayer-srg was forked from trayer in january 2010 to add some
  fancy features and clean up code.
  trayer is small program designed to provide systray functionality present
  in GNOME/KDE desktop enviroments for window managers which doesn't
  support that function. It's similar to other applications such as
  'peksystray' and 'docker'.
  trayer code was extracted from fbpanel application, you can find more
  about it on it's homepage:

  You can find new versions of trayer and support on FVWM-Crystal
  project homepage:

  You can find code of trayer-srg on his github page:

	--align			    - alignment <left|center|right>
	--margin		    - length of margin in pixels
	--distance		  - space between trayer's window and screen edge
	--distancefrom  - Specifies which edge to calculate distance from, see above.
	--widthtype		  - how panel width is calculated:
    request - follow widgets' size requests. can shrink or grow dynamically
		pixel   - ocupy fixed number of pixels, then 'width' variable holds a number
		percent - be 'width' precent of an edge
	--width			    - width of a panel (not used with --widthtype=request)
	--heighttype		- how panel height is calcilated:
		pixel   - ocupy fixed number of pixels, then 'height' variable 
              holds a number
	--height		    - height of a panel in pixels
	--SetDockTpe		- Identify panel window type as dock <true|false>
	--SetPartialStrut	- Reserve panel's space so that it will not be covered by 
                      maximazied windows <true|false>
