on 10.04: no tray and no notifications

Asked by Koantig Idaho on 2010-05-08

Hi there,

I've just upgraded from Koala to Lynx and upgraded to gwibber in the process. I have a couple of issues with it:
a) It doesn't minimize to tray. The service is running (/usr/bin/python /usr/bin/gwibber-service) but I cannot see any icon there. Or is it by design?
What my tray looks like after closing Gwibber: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1566043/tray_after_closing_window.jpg

b) It doesn't display notifications. The option is ticked, I've checked.

Thanks in advance!

Ahem... I had ticked both "Display notifications" and "Only display notifications for mentions".
It works now that I unticked "Only display for mentions".
Sorry for the noise, and look forward to Buzz support. Cheers!

If you managed to get Gwibber to minimize to tray, I'd love to know how :)


Well Gwibber is part and parcel with MeMenu now with Lynx so closing Gwibber actually minimises it to the tray even though you don't see any Gwibber icon there. I have to say that I still have a manually-created launcher on the panel (dating from Koala) that I use for reading and replying to past messages. I don't know how to do it from MeMenu.

Thanks Koantig :)

My issue is that I do get the notifications, but those are not clickable if they contain a link for instance, nor does clicking the notification open Gwibber...

So I guess I'll have to create a launcher too so I can easily open up Gwibber if I see an interesting twit passing by.

I must say that I find this a *severe* regression from Jaunty where the iconification worked just fine.
