for the records. I just upgraded to KF 5.17 from updates-testing and it
seems like the issue with the GTK Icons in the system tray was fixed by
it. No empty spaces in the system tray anymore. Not saw this for a
pretty long time.
The issue with the taskbar still exists however. Some applications
(manually installe dones? Self-Compiled gpodder, downloaded eclipse) are
still lacking of icons in the task bar. The starter left to it, seems to
be affected as well, while all other places (e.g. quick launch) seems to
be working fine.
I have some strange issues here with some icons not being displayed.
Hopefully someone can help or at least confirm that he is observing
1. Amarok icon does not show in the system tray making it every
difficult to use. It seems like it is actually in the tray, but where
the icon shall be there is a gray area. However the context menu shows
up when clicking at it and seems to be basically working fine, except
there is no icon?
2. I think that most GTK applications are affected by something
similiar. However this time the task bar is affected. Applications like
"gPodder" or "eclipse" does not show any icon in the task bar and
making it difficult to identify them easily. The icons seems to be
basically available and seems to be working fine e.g. with a folder view
on the desktop.
Any ideas or similiar observations?
