Title: [How to] Restore gmb icon in the systray on Unity
Post by: mgrubert on February 06, 2012, 20:25:13
First install dconf-tools, if not :
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install dconf-toolsSecond run dconf-editor :
Code: [Select]
dconf-editorBrowse to desktop.unity.panel to find the field : systray-whitelist and add gmusicbrowser to the list.
Before field contains, for instance :
Code: [Select]
['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Wine', 'scp-dbus-service', 'Update-notifier', 'clementine']After field contains :
Code: [Select]
['JavaEmbeddedFrame', 'Wine', 'scp-dbus-service', 'Update-notifier', 'clementine','gmusicbrowser']

Suggestion for Quentin : Make gmusicbrowser modify this field during installation

Do you have it set in Settings/Layout/Show Tray Icon?

If you do, you are most likely missing an indicator tool that Ubuntu uses...

I am sure someone will be by to tell you hat you need... I use Debian and od not know what Ubuntu needs...

You have to add the "notification area" applet : alt-right click on an empty space of the panel, choose "add to panel", and choose "notification area"

on pure Unity (Ubuntu 12.04) the dconf solution does not work for me. I see the tray icon on song change appear on the global menu position briefly but I cannot summon it with mouse focus. Any suggestion?

**UPDATE**
This fixed it.
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install indicator-appmenu
Tray Icon with Unity == happy camper

Didn't work for me unless I removed 'guayadeque' from the whitelist. Because I still had guayadeque installed when I switched to gmusicbrower.

EDIT:
I found out that also tray icons from other audio players interfere with gmusicbrowser, not only guayadeque. So keep this in mind when putting gmusicbrowser in Unity's whitelist. You first have to remove those other entries from other audio players, so that gmusicbrowser's tray icon appears in the panel.
