and it may never do

This is a very difficult problem to solve - I am not even sure it can be solved:

Pointers welcome.

Looks like I was wrong about them not using dbus, so we may be able to do something after all (as was done for #22), some more pointers:

Or even by implementing the raw X11 specification: XEmbed).

comment:3 is wrong about being wrong about dbus (..): the spec does not use dbus, and most apps will not use a dbus interface either, so we must implement the docking tray icon spec directly.

Found pypanel which may serve as a good base for implementing our own tray icon forwarding code.

adds a hardcoded area for tray icons to dock into - ugly hack for now

It is mostly working as it is, but with some limitations we should address:

adds the ability to handle 32-bit window backing

We probably also need to split this code into a separate executable so that we can exit/upgrade xpra without losing the trays.

Tue, 05 Mar 2013 10:01:02 GMT - Antoine Martin:

For transparency, see #279

Tue, 21 May 2013 09:11:04 GMT - Antoine Martin:

transparency fixed in r3475 for *nix

Works well enough.

Thu, 31 Oct 2013 12:28:12 GMT - Antoine Martin:

win32 native code in use as of r4640 - which allows us to do things other implementations cannot do: hovering events, etc

(setting correct milestone the work was completed in)
