minor feature req [Nov. 30th, 2003|10:24 pm]

I generally keep my logjam window open all the time, & have the little check friends system tray indicator applet in my gnome panel.. however, if it's been a while since I've clicked it, and there's been more than 1 new entry since I last checked, I'll often have to click it twice, since it'll turn orange again rather quickly. I'm guessing this is because, rather than constantly check even after it's found new entries and turns orange, it stops checking after finding the first new entry and simply highlights the indicator, leaving its "last checked" time wherever it was. Would it be easy to modify the functionality so that once you click it to clear the "found new" status, it resets the last checked time to that moment, rather than when it found the first new entry?

Does LogJam support applet panels in KDE?

Do I have to do anything special to enable it? I haven't been able to get it to work.

i don't really know the details of it... :\
i think you need to run some special panel applet that shows "dock" apps or something like that. (dock apps = apps that use a generic system that gnome and kde share.)

So the ability to "dock" an application is not Gnome/KDE specific? There is some generic way to dock an app in X. That's cool

It isn't generic to X, but it is generic to desktop environments that support the relevant freedesktop.org standards.

Recent releases of KDE & GNOME both qualify, but some other environments don't play well with others that way. I'm thinking specifically of the moldy oldie CDE, which is mainly used on commercial UNIX flavors like AIX, Solaris, HP-UX...though fortunately for everyone, CDE's days seem to be numbered.

More or less; it's a shared standard. I personally use Docker (http://www.icculus.org/openbox/2/docker/); there's also other implementations available (IceWM has the tray built in as of version 1.2.13, for example.).
