Lxpanel tray icons bugging out

Post by kenny_w »

Hello everyone. Lately on two of the more bleeding-edge linux distros I use, I've been having my tray icons bug out really bad, especially network-manager-applet's tray icon. Does anyone know anything about this issue? I want to stay on LXDE, I don't like LXQT! LXQT might be OK if the settings menus were the same, but they're not the same... so... Can I fix my tray icons somehow?

Is there perhaps a way I can disable lxpanel & enable lxqt-panel in place of it? That would probably solve this issue... I'm not a fan of the way the menus are in LXQT at all... Tried disabling lxpanel in the autostart file & replacing it with lxqt-panel but it doesn't start lxqt-panel right, it opens but I can't actually see it...

Namely its network-manager-applet & blueman, but I think others are also doing it.

One of the beauties of LXDE is components for the most part are not integrated. So install a different panel. I like fbpanel: http://lxlinux.com/fbpanel.html.

since you are using bleeding edge distros, you should be able to provide much more information for each case separately.
